Hopefully Fuji releases the final version as a faster lens around F1.4.

Swings and roundabouts. It would be much bigger if it was f1.4. f2 is reasonably fast for a 90mm lens.

Reasonably fast is right. But the Nikon 1.4 and Canon 1.2 85mm lenses are nice on crop cameras. It would be nice to have a very fast 85-90mm for the X system that I can use auto focus with. Maybe Fuji will surprise us.

1.2/85mm ... and then complain that the lens is too big and too heavy ...
I think the 2/90mm will be a very good compromise, in f-stop, weight and size.

2000 Gramm vs 800 Gramm
