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?

My point exactly. FF is becoming the cheapest system to own, and since introduction of A7(r) (which will no doubt be followed by smaller cameras from Canikon, after all even the mirrorless A7 is bigger than the film FF SLR Olympus OM-1) is becoming comparable in size and weight.
