Rumor: Fuji No Longer Making an X-Pro1s, Will Focus All R&D on the X-Pro2 Instead

xpro1_mini

If you follow the rumor mill — and given how accurate rumor sites have gotten lately, many people do — you’ll know that the next big Fuji release was rumored by some to be the X-Pro1S. That, it seems, may have changed since the release of the X-T1.

According to Fuji Rumors, an anonymous source who has provided accurate information in the past revealed that there will NOT be an X-Pro1S, instead “all R&D [research and development] is being placed into X-Pro2 for 2015.”

As to why Fuji decided to make this decision, you can feel free to speculate in the comments down below. FR seems to think that the success of the X-T1 had something to do with it, but we’d love to hear what you think.

As we tell you every time we report on a rumor, take this with a grain of salt. That being said, if this turns out to be true, we applaud Fuji’s decision. Not that great cameras haven’t come in smaller upgrades like this (the X100s comes immediately to mind) but saying no to incremental upgrades and instead going for big product updates will, we think, make most photographers happier.
