Barney Britton:

Last week, Fujifilm announced several new products including two major new cameras – the X-Pro2 and X70. DPReview was at the launch event in Tokyo where we made time to sit down with two senior Fujifilm executives – Mr. Toru Takahashi and Toshihisa Iida.

After reading the interview, I can see how they’re passionate about their products. And it explains my feelings about Fuji, which I wrote about yesterday, too.

Fujifilm helped kick off the mirrorless camera revolution back in 2012 by announcing the powerful retro-styled X-Pro1 camera. Now it appears that a follow-up will soon be upon us: the first official photos of the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 have leaked.

This might be ‘my next’. Or rather a companion to my Fuji X100T.
