one of many out there:

Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 (X Mount)

 

I just got this lens in - used it 2-3 days - and I'm impressed! Sharp wide open all over. Perfekt build quality. Wide focusring makes it easy to fokus with mitten - important here in the arctic wintertime. Fast autofocus. A lot of reviews out there...

I'm afraid my good old Leica R Summilux 80mm with Metabone speedbooster got a serious competitor here!

Since this lens is so sharp wide open you may use it wide open most of the time (?) - so a ND filter during daytime would be a good idea. I got a 8X ND for this 62mm lens and that works fine on snow covered ground in daylight.
