Is this an "X-type"?

I read an article this morning on Bloomberg about Fujifilm and Olympus. My question is not really about the article, but is about any image showing Fujifilmís CEO Shigetaka Komori holding a really neat looking rig. Is this one of the new Fuji X-type cameras?
Here is a (LINK) to the article. The image in question is in the leftmost column.

Oh man, that's funny. Thanks for the new Avatar...

Found this interesting in the article...

"Fujifilm, established in 1934, gets 44 percent of its revenue from printing, 41 percent from flat-panel display materials, optical devices, pharmaceuticals and medical systems, and 15 percent from color films and digital cameras....

...Meantime, Fujiflim, which has 2.2 trillion yen in annual sales and 81,300 employees, isn’t likely to undergo a name change, even as it tries to move away from the film business."
