Well it is very easy

here is why 42.5 is so expensive

42.5 is limited in monthly production

while it is hard for building up this len in m43

and high cost in material

M4/3 is congenital handicap

but the 42.5 let a m4/3 to compare with APSC

this len is aim to challenge uper level

and actually it really beats many lens in APSC in sharpness and sometimes image quality even nikon

that is why its so expensive

would like to say it is the highest quality lens in M43 (try to compare it with 45 F1.8 in both F1.8 or 75 1.8)

I have got the em10 em1 and GM1<--- i sold all these stuff but keeping Panny 15MM 1.7 25MM 1.4

42.5MM 1.2 45-175MM

and now Gx7 XT1 on hand

Gx7 with always 15 or 42.5 cause they are really cool ! (i am thinking to sold out 45-175 and 25 1.4)

XT-1 with 56 1.2 is not bad also but its looks like just what it should be.

but if your consideration is image quality and actually performance

Go For XT1 its really nice, but with 56MM Fuji AF is still a bit slower then ANY M4/3 .
