Re: Please help me decide on a versatile telephoto prime

"Versatile" is entirely subjective. With a telephoto, you will have to stand further from the subject, if you want to keep the same frame, compared to your 35mm lens. Or you need to get closer, if you want tighter than with the 35mm lens.

I am a big fan of the doubling of focal lengths for primes, but unfortunately Fuji does not have a 70 or 75mm lens. The closest are the 60 macro and the 80 macro - they are both highly versatile, as they also do macro. Have you considered adapting MF lenses? Leica and Voigtlander have a few wonderful M mount 75mm lenses.
