    Looks like I found the worthy replacement for the X100! I like this quote the most in the first impressions article.
    "What the hybrid viewfinder helps to reinforce is the sense that the X-Pro2 itself is a specialized tool: a camera whose operation is as anachronistic as its appearance and as steeped in tradition as the film stocks it simulates. While the X-T1 feels like a mirrorless camera that behaves like an SLR, the X-Pro2 feels like something more esoteric: a camera that wants to be shot with a 24, 35 or 50mm equivalent prime."

    LOL. SO true. Exactly how I felt with the X100.

    Now if only Fuji would make a 23mm f/2 lens for their X-mount. When I had the X-Pro1 I found myself using the EVF more than the OVF with the 35/1.4... whereas I had no problem working with the OVF of the various X100 models.

    The other thing I would have liked is if they had their shutter speeds in half (or third) stops, otherwise they are a lot less useful for my usage style. But eh... its just a minor quibble... for Fujis I've always left the shutter dial in A and used the EC dial, as their histograms have been quite accurate for my use.

    But they have a 23mm f1.4!

    That one's too big, it's more for SLR-styled bodies like the XT-1. Rangefinder-style needs smaller lenses...

    Yea. That I do agree. Haven't been in touch with the photography world for quite a while now. Now that the X-Pro 2 is getting me back interested, what would you recommend for a nice pancake lens for the X Mount

    I dunno... the only native X-mount lens I've used on an X-Pro1 was the 35/1.4, which is a pretty good 50mm-equiv, but not what you'd call pancake. The 27/2.8 is supposedly good, as is the new 35/2. I hear the 18/2 is crap though... which is a pity for those of who are 28mm-natives -- the only decent alternatives for this range is the Nikon Coolpix A, Ricoh GR and Leica Q.

    Also 23mm is lacking, unless we want to go with the big 23/1.4...

    Yea. looking at the list of X Mount lenses, it still is kinda lacking after so many years. And the 27/2.8 seems like the best everyday choice.
