Which makes it cheaper than the Panasonic 40mm f1.2 for a much, much smaller format; and cheaper than the Fuji 56mm f1.2 lens for a considerably smaller format. (though without AF)

I suppose it depends what excellent, but for sheer optical quality I will be amazed if it matches the 65 for this speed, price and size. To match the staggering quality of the 65 and make it much smaller and much faster would be a *very* expensive undertaking - not a 10% more undertaking.

That doesn't mean it won't be excellent, depending on what you mean by 'excellent'. My fear is that the CV65 may have changed our ideas of what 'excellent' is in ways that will make us disappointed in the quality of anything that isn't a behemoth...
