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

I'm contemplating keeping the 100-300mm and one M43 body, selling all my other M43 gear, and moving to Fuji. Can anyone offer a compelling reason for why I shouldn't switch?

If you are after fast primes like this, the smallest sensor is certainly the wrong direction to look at. Not only 42.5 is more expensive, it is also slightly bigger and heavier, so what's the gain then?

The gain is all your neighbours and friends dying from jealousy once you tell them what what you bought. The performance and photos quality if at all, Are completely unimportant.

...why I shoot FF.  It's a horrific beast of a kit, but it shames men shooting smaller formats with their jealousy and impresses the hell out of the ladies, who think my large lenses make up for my, well, you know.   Absolutely worth the money and weight by any measure (no pun intended), I tell you!
