It's actually smaller. Or did i miss something?

Fuji: 73.2mm x 69.7mm

Nikon 85g: 80 x 73 mm

Af speed is adequate i'm sure. AF speed is a luxery that is overrated anyway. imo.

Canon EF 85/1.8: 75x71 mm

Canon FDn 85/1.8: 63x53 mm, 345 grams, filter diameter 52 mm! (add ~1" of adapter thickness to its length for use on Sony A7).

If AF speed is overrated, go manual focusing... Sony A7 with FDn 85/1.8 would cost and weigh the same as Fuji X-E2 with 56/1.2. Add FDn 35/2 instead of 23/1.4 and save another $800... Konica Hexanon 50/1.8 will likely outresolve Fuji 55/1.4 on FF sensor (albeit with worse bokeh quality) at equivalent apertures (starting f/2.1) for another $500 savings...

AF itself and AF speed are not something to neglect.
