1. First of all, it looks REALLY good, like an object of desire that has been crafted with utter care and precision. And it looks like a nostalgic throwback to the good old days of manual film cameras, which I love.
2. When you hold the X-Pro2 in your hands, everything feels just right. The buttons and dials inspire love.
3. It's very light. Which makes me want to bring it on trains and travel across oceans with it.
4. It has in-camera film simulations inspired by the actual films traditionally produced by Fuji. That's why the JPEGs look so good out of the camera - every JPEG comes treated with one of these gorgeous-looking film simulations (depending on which one you select), including the popular films Classic Chrome (color) and ACROS (black and white).
5. Its image quality and dynamic range rival that of my 5DMIII, which means it functions as a work camera for me as well these days. I still rely on my 5DMIII for most jobs but I do hope to eventually transition into using only Fuji cameras, since they are so portable and work so well.
6. Since this is not an actual review, I will not touch on many of the more technical aspects of the camera that I love, like how it has a great electronic viewfinder, and how it has a WIFI function (which, while not the best, allows me to post my photos on the go, unlike my 5DMIII), and how wonderful it is to finally have TWO SD card slots (allowing you to shoot on one and backup on the other), etc.
7. I will instead talk about how with the X-Pro2 I have a newly rekindled passion again in making photographs on my own time or when I am traveling, simply because I have so much fun using it. It's a new-found love for an old hobby.
I can probably still think of more reasons but what I really want to do is show you some of the photos I made with the X-Pro2. So here you go!
