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?

You will also need to keep the 7-14mm with another m43 body as x mount has nothing that wide. Nor likely ever will.

The upcoming Fuji 10-24mm F/4 is equivalent to 7.65-18.36mm in M43 terms. Good enough for me.

So why don't you just switch?  Nobody's denying that Fuji doesn't also have a perfectly decent mirror less system.  But it's strengths do not seem to be the same as the strengths of the Micro 4/3 system.

If it were me,  I would just buy a perfectly nice 45mm f1.8 for $300 or so, push my ISO up a stop if I needed to, and know that good quality IBIS lets me have perfectly solid system for low-light shooting, and smile at the $700 or $1300 that stayed in my bank account.
