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

Fuji offer amazing lenses and there system is starting to fill out nicely. For me who is really only only interested in ultra to wide to 90mm (ff equivalent) they offer the lenses that I'd want. Perhaps if I was starting now I might go for that system. They don't really offer cheaper alternatives. I have a 14mm f2.5 and oly 45mm f1.8 which is a nice small cheapish combo that I couldn't get with fuji.

Pick your poison and I chose mine a while ago before fuji had much in the way of choice. I thought about changing but in the end it's a hobby and cost is important. Having said that I actually really like what I have so I'm fine with the choice I've made.

I agree about the panasonic 42.5 being too expensive, if it was the same price as the fuji I would buy it.
