My guess is that one is 30mm f4, then the other is tele TSE for product, food shots, like 120mm without macro.

If you already own the Canon 50, 90 and 135 t/s-e, there's little reason to consider a new Fuji t/s lens in that general vicinity, especially when those three mentioned already work so well. Plus, having been a product shooter as a big part of my long career, I'd say that I shoot more product with a slightly wide angle lens for dramatic effect. Of course, it all depends on the shot and the art director, but I generally get to set the tone. And, of course, the longer you do in focal length, the less you need tilt or shift and the more you need focus stacking. That Canon 50 t/s-e is a rocking product lens, especially up close. I mean, they all are but that little bit of extra drama that 50 gives (and a 40 might even be better) is often the edge that's needed.
