An X-ray is a G4Gamma::GammaDefinition() in Geant4. Every PhysicsList will instantiate a G4Gamma for your simulation. There is no such destinction as 'gamma' and 'X-ray'. An X-ray is simply a low energy gamma. While this is true for x-rays, an optical photon is NOT simply an even lower energy gamma. A G4OpticalPhoton is a different Definition() in Geant4. Hope this clarifies the situation.
