I think the 2/90mm will be a very good compromise, in f-stop, weight and size.

I wouldn't complain. I'd been playing with the idea of getting either a Nikon 85mm f/1.4D or Canon FD 85mm f/1.2. And I'd need to add the weight and length of an adapter.

People seem to be happy with the 56mm f/1.2 even though it's not that much smaller than the Canon 50mm f/1.2.

We might not always get a big weight / size savings with certain Fuji lenses. But we'll still have weight / size savings with the Fuji X camera compared to Nikon and Canon cameras. Plus the price savings of glass compared to Canon's / Nikon's counterparts.

The Fuji 56mm is $999. An f/2 90mm would cost $1,499-1,699. I don't know what the brands you listed cost, but that would put the Fuji beyond my reach.
