X-S1 Fujinon Lens w. 26x Zoom Range

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/706399-REG/Fujinon_XA22X7ES_XA22x7BES_22x_Box_Type.html

According to the X-S1 microsite, the X-S1's 26x zoom range lens to cover the camera's 2/3-inch sensor is based on a 20x or 22x Fuijinon video lens. Yes, that is a 22x zoom range lens that is on sale for $43,000 from B&H. It covers video cameras with the same 2/3-inch size sensor that the X-S1 will have inside.

I just love people who belittle the poor $900 X-S1, when the lens on it alone should probably be priced in the thousands of dollars if avallable separately. Incidentally, Fujinon lenses covering the 2/3-inch sensor size cameras go up to almost $200,000. That would be for one lens, BTW. So, I don't see how Fuji can as much ad break even giving us the X-S1 body AND the 26x zoom on it for the reported app. US$900 price.
