I currently am in the same situation, Fuji 35 1.4, 7 artisans 35mm 1.2 or Mitakon 35 0.95.

i would go with the mitakon if it weren’t for the weight. And I am not finding much info on the 7artisans, so...

I use a thumb rest on my X-E1 and it makes it a lot easier to balance the camera with the Mitakon mounted. The weight of the lens is not a serious issue for me.

Pictures below show a different lens but the thumb rest is well-depicted:

I believe I got it at lensmate:

I guess there are other thumb rests out there from other manufacturers.
