Nikon 85/1.8 G is an excellent lens, I have one and love it (on D610). And, indeed it's cheaper (two times in the US) than this new Fuji, which helps offset high price of FF camera.

However, it has a very serious drawback: longitudinal CAs are pretty terrible. I actually prefer Canon's 85/1.8 for that reason (even though Nikon is marginally sharper) --that is preferred until I sold all my Canon gear in favor to Nikon.

It remains to be seen how new Fuji deals with LoCAs, it may or may not be better than Nikon 85. For twice the price it'd better be...

I would think the 56 will be highly optically compensated.

Not because I think they are good, but because I would like to improve (feel free to provide me with feedback):
