With all of the stated similarities between the X-Pro1 and X-E1, I assumed the AF performance would be the same with respect to the zoom, however, I saw an interesting footnote in Fujifilm's press release of the lens from September that had me thinking twice about that assumption. Scroll to the bottom and look at the feature list for the zoom lens and notice the footnote stating the AF performance is when paired with the X-E1. Why make this distinction if the performance would be equal for the X-Pro1?

This is exactly why I am asking. It's hardly to imagine that same sensor plus processor will end up different result, but who know if there is any subtle difference in design for AF optimization. Well, I guess that we will have to wait until the zoom is available before knowing the truth.
