My vote would be for the new 56 which I'll likely purchase too. I had the original 56, along with the 90 and found the the 56 focal length is easier to work with, particularly with group shots from a distance perspective. The old 56 was a bit faster to focus in poor light, which I'm sure has only improved with the new 56.

I've had the 90f2 for many years - it's by far my most used lens but mostly for sports/action. If I can take portraits with it, I do as it's the best lens in my bag, even if it's a bit more specialized.

Good luck with your decision - you can't really go wrong with either lens. They're both in the top tier of Fuji primes.

Hey thanks for the comment!

Something I realised when reading other posts is that almost everyone who owns/owned both (56mm and 90mm) say if they had to keep one it would be the 56mm. This indeed makes me wonder.

Would you also keep only the 56mm if you also had the 33mm in your bag?
