The Olympus M.ZUIKO version is only 136g, and at $349 is $50 cheaper.

I think the f/0.95 maximum aperture is interesting only to filmmakers who want an unbelievably shallow depth of field. I don't see it being much use in a camera that flies around; good luck keeping anything in focus. And the Olympus lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.8, which is only about 1 and 1/3 stops narrower.

From the article:
The new lens features manual focus design and a click-less, silent aperture ring for smooth handling and is especially well-suited to video applications.
This is a manual-focus lens, which makes it just about useless on a drone.

And the click-less aperture ring means that the camera cannot change the aperture, which makes it just a bit more useless on a drone.
