Yea, whilst it is cool that they're releasing such a lens it definitely cannot compete with the Canon 85mm 1.2 as much as their marketing may soon suggest otherwise.

they can compete in one way for sure (I used to own 85/1.2L II).   85 1.2 weighs over a kilo.  It was a bitch to carry even on my 5DM3 after a while.    56/1.2 from Fuji is 400 grams.  It will be a pleasure to carry on my XE2.   Preordered.
