    I have both...both are superb.
    If I had to choose only one it would be the 56mm. You need more room for the 90mm and the f1.2 aperture actually comes in handy for dimly lit restaurants and bars.

    However, it also depens on what other lenses you have. If you have a 23mm i would go with the 56mm, and if you have the 35mm i would go with the 90mm.

    The 80mm might fit the bill. :)

    I have both too. The 90mm gets more love from me. It's incredible IQ. I think Lenstip.com found it to be the highest resolving lens. I've learned however that every time I PX a lens I wish I had kept the old one too. But that's just me.
    1. If I had to choose only 1 between the 56mm and the 90mm, I would choose the 90mm
    2. If the 80mm was also an option, then I think that will be more versatile (but bulkier), as it has both IOS and 1:1 macro

    I also own both. I use the 90 for outdoor portraits where I have room to work and a good amount of light. The 56 comes out when the light is getting low or when I have less space to work. The 56 is more versatile but the 90 renders magic.

    I have the Rokinon 85mm f1.4. I bought it used in like new condition on Ebay for $159. It is big and heavy. However, since it has an image circle designed for 35mm, it is sharp corner to corner at least once you get to F2. I would bet the Fuji 90 is just as good or better at f2. But it is nearly $1000. I don't use telephotos very often so I tend to spend less on them than I do on wide angles.
