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

Re: Presumably...

Agreed. For portraiture IS is at best of theoretical use.

Lack of OIS would not deter me from buying this lens. Like most, price does, no matter how I appreciate the lens itself... That being said, OIS is a welcome addition, not for portraiture, but for the fact that this actually is a general purpose short tele lens that happens to be in a sweet spot for portraiture: if not portraiture, I can think of many other cases where you want to stop down several stops.
