    XF70 f/2
    why ?
    because 105mm equiv. is recognised worldwide as a classic portrait focal length (the classic 85-105 debate)

    I think it'd be a hit.
    The Nikon 105 f2dc was an all time fav.
    Love the working distance.

    I think they could design it to be fairly small too.

    Me too. Never really understood why they introduced the 50mm f2. 70mm makes much more sense to me and would fill a gap in my line up. As long as it's more the build of the skinny 50 f2 rather than that rather podgy 90 f2!
