Fujifilm X-T2 Spotted at 24 hours of Le Mans Car Race… with a Mysterious Blurred Lens!


X-T2 wild

Fujifilm X-T2 tested for Sport Photography

With the Fujifilm X-T2 announcement on July 7, it’s no surprise that prototypes are currently out in the wild.

One of those must be X-photographer John Rourke. As you can see above, hew as at the 24 hour of Le Mans with the X-T2!

We can see:

  • the X-T2 with the “C” marking on the comp.dial
  • the new ISO dial
  • the new battery grip (with added grip to the camera)

Moreover, there is a blurred lens mounted on the X-T2. I don’t think it’s because the lens is an unreleased Fujifilm prototype.

My personal guess is that Fujifilm blurred the lens image, because it’s an adapted lens (maybe the Canon EF 8-15mmF4L, as suggested in the comments)… and Fujfiilm does not really like it to advert other companies camera/lenses on their official channels. You might remember how they removed Zack Arias wonderful Morroco Video, just because for a fraction of a second there was a Leica to see. Fujifilm removed the Leica, and put the video online again.

But, luckily, they forgot to blur the real deal here: the Fujifilm X-T2 with the new vertical battery grip! And get ready to see some nice fast car shots on July 7 ;)

The leaks comes from Fujifilm itself, at fujifilm-x
