Opinion: With the same camera I can use:
a new generation electronic viewfinder;
a Galilean viewfinder with superimposed digital information;
a modern interpretation of the rangefinder that unites a Galilean viewfinder and the area that we are focusing on in a digital version;
Indeed, a modern interpretation of the rangefinder. As far as I am concerned this the real revolution.
Why so much enthusiasm for such solution?
The great advantage of the rangefinders is that they offer a wider vision of the scene compared to that which is actually framed. Basically, on the basis of the focal length used, the lines that delimit the framing occupy a greater or smaller area within the viewfinder. In any case this area will always be smaller compared to the global vision that one has when looking through this type of viewfinder. All of this translates in the capability of being able to simultaneously observe elements that we are framing with elements that are out of the picture.
Pros: very solid camera; It produces excellent files, and once you have studied the menu options carefully, does exactly what you want.
Cons: Very expensive camera; very offputting that there is no written manual- the supplied disc did not function- it showed up on the desk top, but would not open! I think that with a camera which is top of the range, the least Fuji could do is to supply a proper manual.
Opinion: Gradually getting used to the beast- it performs very well, lovely colours straight out of the camera (JPEG). i have written to Fuji asking for a written manual As I also have the X-pro !, which I am very pleased with, I think the changes which have been made to the X- pro 2 are subtle, but very noticeable
I prefer to use JPEG, rather than RAW, despite what everyone seems to think is the cats whiskers ! I think the JPEGs are excellent out of the camera; I prefer to spend my time shooting, rather than crouching in front of a computer ... I think the battery life is a little low, but so is that of the Leica M10, more than 3 times the price !

Pros:it is the most beautiful camera made recently (aesthetically) and a great machine throughout.
Cons:cool but useless optical viewfinder.
Opinion:Crazy. I took this machine to flank the xt2 6 months ago for the 2020 season in place of the x100f. Machine that I wouldn't know what to add except fantastic. really recommended to those who want to be a photographer a little less to those who also want to make videos because then the xt2 is better. Crazy files like that I've already written for the xt2 and the xe3. Here maybe I expected a little more from the buffer.
Cons:Optical sight, non-orientable display, ISO dial
Opinion:A machine that I have owned for a few months now, and that I use mainly with vintage optics or with the 27mm XF f2.8; I get to say one thing right away: it's a flagship, and you can see and feel it in every detail. Although exceptional machine, it is not immune to some defect, or at least for those who write; In detail: 1) viewfinder, cute and definitely of wow effect, but then in everyday use? With tele optics?! Practically useless. Great only for street/landscapes/grandangles. 2) a little slow at times, I can not say that it has inputs, but for sure, it does not always maintain the same fluidity (quiet ly have always used it in high-performance); 3) the quick menu often makes you inadvertently set the automatic bkt, big break that there is no option off; just navigate the menu, hover over it, and zac! You find it activated. Fujifilm wake up!! Otherwise it is an ESPERTMACHINE machine, when you hold it in your hand (and it is not true that it has grip problems, and I have big hands) you immediately feel that you have a machine, a solid and reliable tool. The ISO estate is then something exceptional, it looks endless without any kind of noise, even above 11,000 ISO there is a very light grain but very very pleasant. The jpg files, are the usual and famous jpeg Fujifilm house, beautiful and ready-made in 80% of cases. To conclude, if you do street, reportage and landscape, I recommend it with my eyes closed.
Cons:Prohibitive eyepoint with glasses. Shutter dial block button in "A" mode.
Opinion:I used, for work and pleasure, many analog and digital cameras. From medium format (Hasselblad and Mamiya) to 35mm (Nikon F3, Fm2, d300, d700... etc). I believe that the Fuji system and, in particular, its cameras with decentralized viewfinder are, for those with the dominant right eye, the non plus ultra for street photography. They are: light, ergonomic (especially for those who come from the analog cameras of the time), discreet and with an excellent image quality (both in color and in b/n). The x-pro2 has all the keys in the right place, a fast and precise AF and a "one and three" crosshairs, really extraordinary. It's the best of itself in pairs with fixed optics (from 18mm to 35mm). 2 weights to improve: 1) really reduced eyepoint (problematic for those who use glasses) 2) the superfluous shutter key pad in automatic mode, which greatly slows the transition to normal shooting times.
