1:2 ... 2:1

How often would the 1:2 of the Fuji 60 not be close enough? If it would usually be enough then you should look again at it, see what is for sale. It is an excellent lens and for occasional closer images you could add your extension tubes. Obviously if you are habitually closer it won't get rid of the irritation. 1:2 on APS-C is fairly close.

So I'd like to contradict here.

It really depends on what you're shooting.

I habe the Laowa 65 mm f/2.8 2:1 lens, and I really use it up to 2:1. For example, for small insects, 1:2 is really not enough.
