If it is comparable to the Canon and Nikon full-frame 85/1.8s, yes, twice as expensive, as usual for mirrorless. If it is comparable to the 88/1.4s, then is a good deal to an awesome deal.

Really, I think, the crop 1.2 corresponds to 2.0 on full-frame? So, probably more like the 85/1.8s, but if it is as least that good, I will be pretty happy.

Exactly, and it is likely a better quality lens than an SLR 85mm f/1.8.  Look at new Sony 55mm f/1.8 for full frame, it is $1000, but it is much better build and optics than the cheap 50mm f/1.8, but invariably people compare them.

I imagine if people are blown away by the image quality they won't care.  Do we have detailed specifications on 56mm f/1.2 yet, like optical formula or anything?
