Why is the 42.5 F/1.2 $1600 when the Fuji 56mm F/1.2 is only $1000?

I can only guess at the other types of photos you're taking/planning, but from the looks of that one I would imagine that the 12-40mm might be a much better purchase decision both in terms of cost and logistics than any number of exotic primes. Is an ultra-bright portrait lens truly useful on top of a mountain?
