I wonder what these lenses will weight.
Does someone have an educated quess?

I would compare them to the Panasonic 12-35 and 35-100 mm 2.8 and add half a pound to account for the larger sensor it needs to cover.

I think cost will be equal to the Micro Four Thirds lenses.

Makes no sense. Those are very different lenses for very different systems. The Panasonic lenses in APS-C equivalent are: 16-47mm f/3.7 and 47-133mm f/3.7 -- almost a stop dimmer! All things being equal the weight and price increase as square to cube of the f-stop.
