+1 for macro. I was really hoping to get a longer focal length macro. Not sure now whether I will end up with the 60mm, but since I have the 56mm I will just wait and see what the 90mm offers.

I think Fuji needs to concentrate more on AF performance than issuing a new macro rated lens. There are plenty of options for third party manual macro lenses. The focus mechanism for a good macro needs to be geared differently to provide improved close focus accuracy. This slows AF performance. That's the compromise that came with the 60mm.

I like the 60mm when mounted on my X-E2.
