It's up to you. In addition to the X-Pro2, Fuji also launched another mirrorless camera, the XT-2 and Fujifilm XT-20. You can choose one of them.
This will definitely affect the price aspect and its specifications.
Fujifilm X-Pro2 fkey features:
- 24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor (APS-C)
- 273 autofocus points (169 of which are phase-detect)
- 2.36M-dot OLED/Optical hybrid viewfinder with pop-up picture-in-picture tab

The X-Pro2's shutter has been improved, too, and can now shoot as fast as 1/8000 sec, with flash sync extended to 1/250 sec of a second. Applying the firmware update Ver.3.00 or later will add new functions such as "Voice Memo" and "Copyright Information" and dramatically improve operability in autofocus and viewfinder handling.
Fujifilm also claims that the X-Pro2: delivering a new level of X Series photo quality by combining the brand new X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro engine. If you choose this camera, you will enjoy the use of this camera in all weather conditions.

Other great news also reported by kenrockwell.com, Fujifilm X-Pro2 also the first mirrorless camera of which I know that has two card slots, which is mandatory for use as backup for any professional use. Neither LEICA nor Sony are there yet; with only one card slot these other cameras are fun, but not suitable for any professional use where you absolutely, positively need to get your photos.
Meanwhile, engadget.com mentioned that the X-Pro2 new image sensor and processor are fantastic, with great JPG handling, color reproduction (aided by Fujifilm's "film simulation," which lets you choose from various processing options), and usable images even at ISO levels as high as 12,800.
Admittedly, Fujifilm X-Pro2 is not a regular camera, the price is quite expensive, but the specifications and unique features offered Fujifilm could be the reason to have this camera, especially if you are very crazy about high-end photography.
