Fuji X Pro 2

Fuji X Pro 2

Having only used Nikon for the last 16 years to shoot all my photography work  (surf, weddings, commercial)  its a little daunting to say the least changing over the complete camera system.

I have had the Fuji X Pro 2 for a few weeks along with a small selection of lenses: Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8 | Fuji XF 56mm F1.2 |  Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 pancake lens - its a slow process of selling off my unwanted gear and buying new bodies and glass, believe me I will only be doing this once.

Before I shoot my first wedding or commercial job, I want to get completely used to the camera so I put it through its paces at my sons boxing gym "The Onshore Gym" named by the coach Nathan Brooks because if the wind is blowing in that direction its open for business which suits 99% of the boxers that train there, being surfers themselves. Low light sports photography and to be honest I didn't have any problems at all, I am more than confident with making the full transition and having a number of Fuji bodies and lenses for all my work, I am not about to go into technical jargon, the lenses (see above) are incredible, sharp, great colour, well built. Note For a detailed to review I would suggest Ken Rockwell, that goes for all brands and equipment.

Why! I have always dabbled with the idea of going mirrorless, light to travel with, light to swim and shoot with, very unassuming around people, easily blending into the environment, no one seems to care about pointing such a small setup in their direction, plus I shouldn't have been sucked in and picked it up in the shop, the camera felt great, very well built, so reading review after review of the pros and cons and what suits me as a photographer, the time was now...I love it. This setup is going to be perfect for our future travel plans through the Pacific, I will post a number of other reasons when I have the material to back up the quotes.
