I've been living with the X-Pro2 for a while now, put it through its paces and have enjoyed every second of it. This is my final thoughts on the camera now that Ive been using it full time.
A mo nth ago I sold my Canon 6D and almost all of my lenses and I don't regret it for second. In fact, I don't miss it one bit. If theres one thing that switching to the X-Pro2 and X Series line has taught me, is that I don't need the best of the best or even full frame for that matter. are its nice to have and does have it benefits but the Fuji X Series is what I found works best for me. Since purchasing this camera, I've picked up the 35mm f/2, 56mm f/1.2, and 50-140mm f/2.8 lenses and love each and every one of them. They are fantastic.
What I love most is being able to have a small system to shoot with without having to deal with super heavy and large lenses to carry around. All of my prime lenses are very compact. The 50-140mm f/2.8 is rather large and heavy however but not nearly as heavy as my old Tamron was. But its not something I'm going to worry about. The system as a whole is exactly what I need, nothing more, nothing less. It gets the job done and has made me want to shoot more. Sure I still have my issues with certain things but I can look past all that and its not a deal breaker for me. I feel as if I can tackle any type of task without fear that its not going to work as well as I need it to.
Yes I've been asked about why I switched and received many puzzled looks when I tell someone that I went from a full frame Canon to Fujifilm. Many times being asked why not Sony? Im not a fan of the Sony system daily because of functionality, price, and lens selection. I get more feeling from Fujifilm cameras and more joy from it. Its something you just have to experience. They really do make some phenomenal cameras and lenses.
At the end of the day, I love this system. My styles have changed of the years and my needs have as well and this is what fits me the best and I'm sticking with it. Gone are the days where I feel like I need the best gear ever to create stunning work. I urge anyone who has once considered trying this camera system out to jump in and enjoy it. You won't regret it.
