January is beginning to look a lot like January 2016 with camera announcements and news.
It was inevitable that Fuji would eventually release NEW Graphite versions of their popular X-Pro2 and X-T2 Cameras. Today Fuji announces the New FUJIFILM X-Pro2 Body with XF23mmF2 R WR Lens and Lens Hood Kit, Graphite Edition. And, the New FUJIFILM X-T2 Body, Graphite Silver Edition. I own an X-T1 in the Graphite version and it really beautiful. However, at least for me I’ll stick with the black. For those that are interested in the Graphite X-T2 and X-Pro2 then read on.
The new FUJIFILM X-Pro2 Graphite Edition boasts an all-new color to the X Series lineup. The X-Pro2 Graphite Edition has a rich, metallic texture due to a specialty multilayer coating. This edition will include the compact and lightweight FUJIINON XF23mmF2 R WR and LH-XF35-2 lens hood in the same unique Graphite color as the body, achieving high-resolution performance and a fast and silent AF system. The new FUJIFILM X-Pro2 Graphite Edition maintains the features of the current X-Pro2, adopting an extremely high-grade graphite color created through a multilayer coating process for the exterior of the camera body. By increasing the amount of black pigment component of the top coating, the camera achieves a more rich metallic texture. The package will be released as the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 Body with XF23mmF2 R WR Lens and Lens Hood Kit, Graphite Edition in late January 2017. The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 Graphite Edition will be released in late January 2017 in the U.S. and Canada for USD $2,299.95 and Canada $2,899.00.
Building on the popularity of the elegant Graphite Silver version of the X-T1, Fujifilm introduces the new FUJIFILM X-T2 Graphite Silver Edition which will be supplied with tailor-made accessories including a premium leather strap, aluminum hot shoe cover and matching EF-X8 hot-shoe mount flash. The X-T2 Graphite Silver Edition is treated with a multi-layer coating that is triple baked to produce an elegant and tactile finish. The first layer is a matte black undercoat, applied to the magnesium top cover. This undercoat delivers deeper blacks in shadow areas to make highlights stand out. The second layer uses Thin-film Multilayer Coating Technology to apply graphite silver for an incredibly smooth finish with a luxurious shine. The third layer is a clear varnish for a glossy finish. The new X-T2 Graphite Silver Edition will be released in late January 2017. The FUJIFILM X-T2 Graphite Silver Edition will be released in late January 2017 in the U.S. and Canada for USD $1,799.95 and CAD $2,199.99.
