Any body had any experience with the lens? is it up on par with something like the 35 1.4 ? I want something just a bit longer than the 35 for the xH1 but must be as good as the 35,23,14 optically

The 50 f/2 is my favorite Fuji lens. I have a good copy of the 35 f/2, but the 50 seems a little sharper still, especially as you get to the corners. Definitely sharper than the 23 f/2 wide open. IMHO it's also among the fastest autofocusing lenses in Fuji's lineup. There is a little bokeh swirl towards the corners but nothing even close to objectionable.

If you haven't seen the recent Imaging Resource review of this lens, you should check it out. Lenstip has a good review of it too.
