Like its predecessor, the X-Pro1, the new flagship model is the only mirrorless autofocusing rangefinder-style camera with an optical viewfinder. A new 23.6 x15.6mm (APS-C size) X-Trans CMOSâ…¢ sensor provides 24.3-megapixel resolution, the highest resolution in the X-series to date. It features a new copper wiring technology that is thinner than the previous aluminium wiring with less resistance to support faster data transfer. A new floating diffusion amplifier (FDA) reduces noise to 1.0(e). Coupled with the new sensor is a new EXR Processor II image processor that is 4x faster than previous chips. It supports continuous shooting at up to eight frames/second (fps) and the camera has a buffer capacity of 83 JPEGs, 33 losslessly-compressed raw frames or 27 uncompressed raw frames. The new processor is capable of supporting 4K video, although this feature is not included in the camera.

The X-Pro2 is scheduled for release in February at an RRP of $2,699 for the body. As well as X-mount lenses, optional premium accessories for the X-Pro2 include a Hand Grip and Leather Case. Check out our First Look article  for more information.
