Unfortunately, there is no moderately fast tele prime available for Fuji, say a 135/2.8 or 200/2.8. Probably Fuji fears it would cannibalize the 50-140/2.8 or the 200/2.0. But a light-ish tele prime, ideally stabilised, would be a lovely lens indeed.

Indeed, I can not think of a single system today that still features a 135 f/2.8 in its catalogue. Fuji has the 90 f/2 of course, but for travel and landscapes is a bit of overkill IMHO. Pentax got it right for APSC with the small 70mm lens.

The Pentax 70/2.4 and 77/1.8 are nice small teles on a K-3 IIi.

The Olympus 45/1.8 and 75/1.8 also have great equivalent FOVs in a very small package. Obviously at the price of a smaller sensor.
