    I am hoping for:
    - Macro (90+mm)
    - TS (24-mm) (I blame this forum for that)
    - a zoom preferably wide (20-70mm)

    That's FF mm btw.
    In XCD terms, I'd guess the following will be in the lens roadmap:
    ● 30-90mm (24-72mm in 35mm full-frame equivalency)
    ● 120mm (96mm in 35mm full-frame equivalency) portrait lens
    ● 100mm macro (90mm in 35mm full-frame equivalency)
    ● Super-wide (wider than the announced 30mm)
    ● 150mm or 210mm tele (to relieve the pressure of trying to adapt heavy long H lenses to the X1D)

    Hasselblad has plowed that ground before and has optical formulas and lens designs that work. In a small company like Hasselblad, R&D costs are precious. Re-use between platforms (H-to-X) is likely the name of the game.

    Personally, I sold all my HC and HCD lenses when I sold my H4D-40 and -50 several years ago. So I'm starting from scratch here and won't be adapting any lenses. So I haven't chimed in on the autofocus discussion, but have found it entertaining and marginally educational.

    Not counting the 30. What is the cost of body and the first 3 available lenses. I got lost on the costs
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I believe the third lens is the 30mm.

    Thanks for the pricing info on the other lenses guys. Glad to know they are less expensive. I would still prefer to buy a used H 24 or 28 to use on both, to go with my 100 and 35-90. I will say that for me, being able to magnify when focusing is the most important benefit that the EVF lets you use. Have the live exposure is obviously very helpful as well.
