For anyone who thinks the $999 price of 56/1.2 is too high, let me put it perspective. Panasonic just announced the price for its 42.5/1.2 (same 85mm equivalent, althoough DOF more like 85/2.4 on a full frame). Price in the USA - $1599. Makes that Fuji feel like a bargain, no????? Oh and it weighs more than Fuji, even though it has to cover a smaller, m43, sensor. $600 more for what? Image stablization?

Ziess Otus distagon 55 mm F1.4...4000 dollars...any comments? To my mind, you cannot just compare specs and say something sensible about a lens and its performance. Just wait and see. May be the Panny is indeed overpriced. May be the FUji has downsides. Who knows. Wait and see.

I am comparing lenses that cover circles smaller than full frame here. Otus covers full frame and I dont see any problems with its price for what it does. Based on Fuji's previous Xf lenses, I doubt there will be downsides, but we shall see.

Covers a FF sensor too....1/10 of the cost of the Otus. What is the rationale behind such comparisons.
