In a parallel AF system to the Contax AX, the N1 does use autofocus lenses, it also uses autofocus lenses from the medium-format 645AF. Anyone running both 35mm and medium-format systems will tell you of the horrendous cost of a decent lens range in both formats. Criticism is often levelled at the cost of Zeiss lenses; this method chops that cost right down.
