Why buy a new Fuji X lens, when you can buy an equivalent fixed lens body for less?

That's something of a back-handed compliment to Fuji . you seem to be saying that the Fuji gives soft results ? I don't think that a lens can be too sharp unless you throw a sharp but nervous bokeh into the mix for consideration.

If you want softer images for portraiture then achieve this in PP. In the good old days soft portrait lenses were an easy & reliable way of getting smoother rendering for portraits but you have to remember that PP was not so easy & quick with film.

No its not that simple.  There is detail in the Fuji X series.  But somehow there is also a pleasing texture effect.  Someone called it "detail without texture."  I call it plastic skin.

Experience photographers (which I am not) call the IQ of the Fujis "sublime."
