Or perhaps the "incredibly cheap" Sony FE Zeiss 55 F1.8? (Same price as the Fuji 56mm F1.2)

Its a full FRAME LENS.. why cant people grasp that. Because of the sensor size you get a lot more LIGHT.. you'll get MORE light at 1.8 FF in then at 1.2 apsc... Technically its faster.

No, it's not more light. That's the whole point of aperture desigations - they are ratios. f1.2 allows more light than f1.8 in any given time period. That is exactly why bigger apertures are called "fast."

The primary difference at a given aperture with FF is more limited depth of field relative to a smaller sensor.

You are right i was thinking depth of field.

Yeah, that's what I figured. It's interesting because the Fuji and the Sony will have approximately the same DOF wide open, but the Fuji will be able to expose at a relatively faster shutter speed.

At the end of the day they are both very good lenses.
