I'm hoping by the time Fuji formally announces the super tele, its AF tech will be at the level of higher end DSLR quality.

If Fuji has to hold off releasing the super tele in order to maximize compatibility/performance with such a body, I'm willing to wait.

I am in agreement with you there Marcos, I would be willing to wait for DSLR fast AF as well. (after all I am getting by just fine with what we have now) But is it even technically achievable or economically sound from a manufacturing standpoint. I am guess in yes on both accounts, I am an optimist!

OTOH, I also wish they just formally announce the focal length and how fast it'll be.

That would be good information. That way we can either plan for it or just say the heck with it & move on. I would say it would have to be 400mm f/5.6 or better on the long end as a minimum, with OIS or few will be interested.
