News: Fuji Announces Three New Cameras (X-Pro2, X-E2S, X70)

Fujifilm just announced three new digital cameras, all with their renown X-Trans sensors.

The X-Pro2, as you might imagine, replaces the X-Pro1. Just about everything has been revamped and improved (although mostly by small margins). It includes Fuji's first 24-megapixel X-Trans sensor (up from 16-megapixels). This will certainly be a hot item. The MSRP will be $1,700 (body only) and should be available next month.

The X-E2S is an updated X-E2. It includes an improved auto-focus system and an improved shutter. For the most part it is the same camera, just with an "S" added to the name (does "S" for Same?). The MSRP will be $700 (body only) and should be available next month.

The X70 is a fixed-lens pocket camera that is a cheaper (and smaller) alternative to the X100T. It has a 28mm (equivalent) f/2.8 lens. It is also Fuji's first X-Trans camera with a touch screen. The MSRP will be $700 and should be available next month.

While these cameras might make you want to replace whatever you are shooting with, my recommendation is to invest in experiences instead of gear. While these cameras are all excellent I'm sure and they'd certainly be fun to use, none of them will make you a better photographer. Only improved photographic vision will improve your photography.
