A Fuji 90mm f/1.4 and 135mm f/1.8 lens Request

Hello Fujifilm Japan,

I hope you are listening. I had the privilege of shooting for STYLE magazine last week and used my X-T2's and a couple of lenses, the 56mm f/1.2 and 90mm f/2.0. Now, I also have a comprehensive Nikon system with 3 bodies and around a dozen or so very fast lenses.

Although the 90mm is a gorgeously brutally sharp lens and has incredible micro contrast, I would have been absolutely ecstatic had your lens been a f/1.4 i.e. 135mm f/2.0 equivalent lens.

The bokeh is very pleasing but as I shot head to toe, it didn't have that 56mm f/1.2, 35mm f/1.4 and 23 mm f/1.4 magic. To get the kind of bokeh I really want, I must crop in quite closely, (which can be ok).  That extra stop would be a major game changer for me.

I also have the 50-140, but my wife used it for the video of the shoot.

So Fuji, make me a 90mm f/1.4 a 135mm f/1.8 and you will have fulfilled my dreams and functional needs. Can't wait to get my hands on the 200mm f/2.0 lens.

Thanks and Keep Up the Great Work!
