You can spend a heck of a lot less and save for the appropriate Fuji when it comes along. May I suggest the Nikkor 105 f/2.5 AI or AI-s which is a stunner on my XE-1, for the measly sum of USD 200 and less. It may not be f/2.0 or faster as you requested but this lens is sharp wide open and the OOF rendering is first class as is color and contrast. Use it for portraits or landscapes as it excels at both.

An additional alternative is the Nikkor 85mm f/2.0 AI-s, which I do not own yet. It is smaller/lighter and gets great reviews from owners. It's a bit more expensive but also well within your budget.
