ePhotozine interviewed Hasselblad CEO Perry Oosting and here are few of the key info:

1) Hasselblad sold more X1D cameras in 10 days, than they expected to sell in a year.

2) Hasselblad has a roadmap of 5 additional XCD lenses for the X1D

3) About the GFX he says there is a size benefit to the X1D, as the lenses have the shutter built-in to them, rather than having the shutter in the camera. And he expects the price of the Fujifilm to be similar.

Actually Fuji stated the price will be lower. Under $10,000 with lens while the X1D body only costs $8,999 at BHphoto and Adorama. The lowest priced XCD 45mm lens costs $2,295. Total of camera+lens is $11,295.
