Also interesting, when Cinema5D (video below) asked Kevin from Venus Optics if there will be autofocus lenses at some point, Kevin answers:

We are working on it. Autofocus lenses is one of our targets, but it takes a little bit of time

Now that Fujifilm officially said they open their lens protocols, I hope Venus Optics will have access to them and give us a nice range of AF lenses.
