Re: 50mm 1.8 lenses are cheap. Why hasn't Fuji made one?

I think 50mm is a bit betwixt and between on an APS sensor. Too long as a standard lens but but as long as I'd like for portrait. The 56 is on my radar because it is just about long enough and because it has a wide aperture, but I'd like to see a longer prime lens in the 70~85mm range (105~130mm equivalent). If they made a cheap 50mm lens I don't think it would generate enough profit to merit the development costs.
