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.

I don't "take pics." I make photographs.

The Nikon and Canon 1,4 lenses are ver nice on a speed booster on an X. Otherwise they function very like a 135/2,0 lens, which is even more interesting. The 2,0 speed of the Fujifilm will of course make the 90 act like a 135/2,8, which is still decent. The funny thing is how big this lens will be. 90/2 lenses are big. 135/2,8 lenses are not. But because to achieve the equivalent speed/etc., the 90 will be big.
