The Fujifilm X-Pro1 was announced several years ago meaning that it’s high time that a new model is announced. The good news is that if the rumors are to be believed, we won’t have to wait too long for the announcement since CES and CP+ 2016 are both around the corner, but if you wanted more proof, you’re in luck.
It has been discovered that retailers such as B&H have discounted the X-Pro1 by a huge amount. Prior to this, the camera was priced at $1,249 but its new price, as you can see in the screenshot above, is at $699 which is basically a savings of about $550. This is almost a 50% discount which seems to suggest that retailers are trying to clear out inventory ahead of the new model.
We’ve seen this done in the past by other retailers for other products, so it isn’t a stretch to think that the X-Pro2 could be on its way and B&H are trying to get rid of older inventory. That being said, for those who aren’t too fussed about specs and just want a good camera, the asking price of $699 makes it a pretty value for money purchase.
In terms of specs, last we heard in November the X-Pro2 is rumored to feature a 24MP sensor and support for dual SD cards. It will feature an autofocus system with more than 200 AF points, a hybrid viewfinder similar to the X100T, a fixed LCD, ISO range of 200-12,800, 1/8000 shutter speed, and 1/250 flash sync speed. Take it with a grain of salt for now but like we said, CES and CP+ are coming up so we guess we will find out more then.
