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.

I used the Sigma 85mm f1.4 on my Nikon D700 (tried the Nikon too) and it was a beast. The size of that thing is a good illustration of why I now use Fuji instead! If I had stayed with Nikon I might have downgrded to an f1.8 lens for that very reason. Personally I'd be happier if they went for a high quality f2 or f1.8 lens.
