As rumored, Fujifilm's beloved X-Pro1 is indeed getting a sequel. Meet its appropriately named X-Pro2, the top-of-the-line camera that Fuji fanatics have long been waiting on. Designed for professional photographers, the X-Pro2 packs a 24.3-megapixel X-trans CMOS III sensor and new X-Processor Pro imaging chip, up to 8 fps continuous shooting, an extended ISO of 51,200 and a weather-resistant aluminum body. It also features an Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder, which lets users swiftly switch between electronic and optical modes -- we've seen a similar option on previous Fujifilm cameras, such as the X100T and X100S.

Beyond that, you'll find support for 1080p video at 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60 fps. (Sorry, folks, no 4K here either.) There are dual memory card slots as well, plus a 3-inch, 1.62-million-dot LCD and a redesigned user interface that, Fujifilm promises, will make it much smoother to navigate through menus. The X-Pro2, which uses X-Mount lenses and has a 273-point autofocus system, is going to be available in February for $1,700, but keep in mind that's the body-only price.

All in all, this high-end compact camera looks promising and, combined with the other Fujifilm X-Series announcements from today, it leaves the manufacturer in a solid place ahead of Photokina 2016.
