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

The Fuji lens is not 60% cheaper, it's 37,5% cheaper. the base is Panasonic price. But I do agree that this lens is overpriced. It's always the case when there's some exotic glass in it. Look at the new Nikon 58mm f1.4 lens, it sells right now at 1600€ !

owning a Nikon D600 with a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC, and a bunch of Nikon primes, a Nikon J1 but not particularly a Nikon fanboy, since I have an Olympus E-PL5, a Panasonic GX7, a Sony RX10 and a Canon S110 too!
