what 24 - 85? There is no such lens for 645 or else I would own that one. I think seeking f/2 lenses for 645 is a pipe dream. They will be horrendously expensive and very heavy.
The Contax 80/2 was autofocus and not very heavy. Neither are the 2.4 lenses for Leica S, and the Hasselblad 100mm 2.2 is a very reasonable size. As for cost, hopefully they can keep it under $2500, but this IS medium format we're talking about. For many users, it is worth the cost and the added weight. Myself included.

I obviously meant the 45-85, and made a typo.

The blad 110/2 is very similar to the size & weight of the canon 135/2.

And the contax 80/2 is tiny - just a touch bigger than a typical 50/1.4 on 35. Bloody hard to use though
