Our man on the streets of Manhattan, the stalwart Eamon Hickey, is at it again... this time with Fujifilm's latest street-shooting powerhouse, the X-Pro2. As the successor to the Fuji X-Pro1 from 2012, a camera that garnered not only a 5-out-of-5 rating here at IR but also a Camera of Distinction in our 2012 Camera of the Year awards, the X-Pro2 has big footsteps to follow.

Four years in the making, the X-Pro2 brings weather sealing to the line along with a new imaging pipeline, redesigned rear controls and reported improvements in autofocus, among other new features. Also notable of these are reported improvements to the X-Pro1's hybrid viewfinder.

So how do all of these new additions and updates play out in the real world? Head over to Eamon's first Fuji X-Pro2 Field Test for all the details!
