Fujifilm users have some big changes to look forward to. According to Fuji Rumors the Fujifilm X Pro 2 will feature a new 24MP non-organic X-Trans sensor plus room for two SD cards. The updated Fujifilm flagship will also purportedly get a few other upgrades including a new tilting screen and Wi-Fi.

A new source speaking to the rumors site also suggested a camera will come in the 2nd quarter of 2015, which could be any time from April to June. Previously, we’ve heard early reports the X Pro 1 successor could come any time between January to December of next year so we’re going to take this news with a grain of salt.

Whenever it does drop, the Fujifilm X Pro 2 has been rumored to cost 20 to 30% more than the X-T1, putting it in the ballpark of $1559.94-1689.93 for just the camera body by itself.

On a separate, tangentially related note Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki let loose that it’s may make Sony E-mount lenses in an interview with Imaging Resource. Yamaki explained that Sigma has been getting a lot of requests to make lenses as the market of E-mount lenses is still surprisingly nascent. What’s more, Yamaki also hinted at the possibility of taking existing Sigma FF lenses and adding an E-mount option as well.
