Fuji's new XF 50mm f/1.0

I've been eyeing Fuji for some time now with great interest, love their colours and the XT system overall, very high quality cameras and lenses. But one thing, (or lens) I just can't get over is their new XF 50mm f/1.0!

In full frame equivalence, it's roughly a 75mm f/1.5. Nothing to get excited about, there's plenty of full frame 85mm f/1.4's on the market, even 85mm f/1.2!

I read an article somewhere that Fuji originally intended this lens to be a 33mm f/1.0 but during the development phase it was found to be too big and cumbersome. But this makes sense to me!

Of course Fuji owners are drooling over this no matter what, I'm just not that compelled by this lens.
