I fail to see the issue with manual focus on the Fuji X system, since it has every feature thinkable of to support it - focus peaking, magnification, AND digital split screen. I also see no reason why I would need autofocus speed on a portrait lens. And yes the 56/1.2 is 1.2, while the 60/2.4 is "only" 2.4. However the reason I consider a lens a portrait lens is its rendering, and the 60/2.4 renders better than the 56/1.2. And yes all Fujifilm lenses are at least decent. Some are exceptional. Most are good or very good. Compared to what other companies have to offer.
