Fujifilm's X-Pro1 was hot stuff for mirrorless camera fans when it arrived in 2012, but a lot has changed in 4 years -- you can get considerably more powerful gear for the original asking price. At last, though, it looks like the photography giant is ready to update its flagship. Fuji Rumors has scored pictures of an X-Pro2 that (at least on the outside) is a welcome refinement of the original formula. You'll still see the familiar, retro-influenced body, but it boasts clear changes to the viewfinder (possibly borrowing from the X100T) and control scheme -- notice the joystick in the shot below? It may also be more compact, although it's harder to tell in these early images.

What's inside is a tougher call. The images line up with earlier drawings pointing to dual SD cards, but there's not much else known so far. Will it get a fresh sensor? Faster image processing? Maybe. Fujifilm is supposedly unveiling the X-Pro2 on January 15th, however, so you may not have to wait very long to fill in the blanks.
