How much of 'Fuji Color' is Fuji Glass?

I recently picked up a new 50mm vintage lens and wanted to compare its color rendering to what I already had in that focal length. I pulled my Fuji XF 18-55mm out of a drawer and used it as a 'control' figuring it would be the most neutral rendering. I must say, the color difference between the Fuji and the other two surprised me.

Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm f2.8 (circa 1967)
Konica Hexanon 52mm f1.8 (circa 1972)
FUJIFILM XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS (circa 2017)

SOOC, Provia film sim
Fixed ISO and shutter speed

Pick the Fuji....

After you made your choice, you can mouse over the images (on a desktop computer) to see the exif and see if you are right. For the two vintage lenses the focal length will tell you which is which.
