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?
