Interviewing Torben Hondong from Fujifilm: X-Pro2 and future lenses.

Admiringlight’s guys are thoroughly working on the coverage of Fujifilm’s stand at Photokina, and today they have interviewed Torben Hondong, Fujifilm Germany’s manager, who has answered some of the many key questions on the Fujifilm lovers’minds:
