Very informative review for those interested in the differences.

Very interesting. I just upgraded from the 50F2 to the XF 56.  Other previous reviews seem to say the 50F2 is the sharper lens.  This article finds the 50F2 sharper only at close distance..I wonder if this is why lenstip and optical limits found the 50 to be sharper? - are they testing only at close distances??  My personal experience at normal portrait distance is that my 56 is sharper below 2.8 (where I want to use them!) and they are very similar when stopped down.
