Schneider-Kreuznach to introduce Micro Four Thirds lenses

Schneider-Kreuznach has sissued a press release this morning revealing their intention to introduce lenses specifically for MFT cameras. The picture above shows a Super-Angulon 14mm f/2.0 (28mm-equivalent), but there is no further information available at this time. From the photo supplied there's simply no way to tell if the lens has AF or is even 'chipped'. My guess is that it is not AF-enabled but, from the absence of an aperture ring that it might have electronic contacts to convey settings. However, I doubt that has an electronic diaphragm, and suspect this will be a entirely manual, mechanical lens, like the CV lenses.
Update: Some sites are reporting the lens has AF and a price of 1500 Euros, but we can confirm there was no mention of this in the official press release. While not impossible, adding AF to a lens would be a first for Schneider-Kreuznach.
Update: A spokesperson for Schneider-Kreuznach has confirmed to us that the lens will be shown at Photokina, later in the year.
