Also a question which just occurred to me: I thought the camera needs to know about a lens, one of the reasons we see camera firmware updates with each new lens. Isn´t that true? If it is true though, how is this going to be implemented for the Zeisses - thinking of lens profiles data in EXIF, vignetting control, that kind of stuff?

If Fuji is doing it like other manufacturers, the lenses themselves contain a firmware, which tells the body what it needs to know. And if both lens and body adhere to the protocol correctly there should be no need of updating the camera every time a new lens is released. Of course, Fuji could fine tune the camera/lens protocol and is therefore providing simultaneous updates of body and lens at the moment.
