X-Pro2 and X-T2 in the frozen north

Thanks Veejay for putting up this link. The photos are spectacular and the reviews straightforward. 

I will have to drag my wife into the study and show her the photos they are that good - and perhaps it will help ease her into accepting my need of a T2 or Pro2 to replace my X-E1.

      Forget the advantages of the XT2 new AF modes and see what the X-Pro2 can offer using the OVF as a red dot sight.
      This was published before the launch if the XT2.

      Also a few form XT2 and X70 but mainly two XP2s. All 4000 + frames from a Documentary style wedding shoot in a video lasting a just few minutes. By Kevin Mullins http://f16.click/wedding-photography/every-frame-wedding-x-pro2.html

      As most of us already know, the Fuji image files look awesome. To be fair, image files from any camera these days will look really good, but there's something really special about the way the Fujifilm X Series cameras portray color and tone.
      While the Fuji image processors play a part in this, much of the Fuji mojo is due to the X-Trans sensor. With its proprietary non-Bayer pattern design, the X-Trans sensor reproduces color in a unique way that's different from the way it's done in just about every other digital camera.
      In my search to figure out what's really going on here, it occurred to me, (and was verified by a few of the Fuji reps and engineers), that the X-Trans sensor is actually very "film-like." It's much more so than most other sensors, and this is no accident. 
      In designing the X-Trans sensor, the Fuji engineers looked back as much as they looked forward. Trying to preserve the heritage and legacy of traditional photography, they designed the "random" array on the X-Tran sensor so that it resembles the randomness of film.
      As we know, film was essentially silver halide glitter that was poured into a bowl of jelly and smeared onto a plastic base. There was nothing "regular" about the way grain looked in film, and although the X-Trans sensor isn't totally random, it does closely match the look of actual film grain, especially when it comes to the distribution of the green sensitive pixels. Compare that with an actually cross section of Autochrome Lumiere film from the early 1900s. It's amazing how close the pattern looks to the X-Trans sensor pattern.
      Also, compare the two image below, one is a scan from a Velvia slide, and the other is JPEG file from the X-T2.
      You can see an expanded version of this topic on my blog, along with more image examples. I've even got a side by side comparison of the grain in ACROS next to the old T-MAX 3200 film.
      I'm fascinated by this idea, let me know your thoughts!
