Got my 90mm today and not overly impressed with the AF speed & adding to that mine appears to mis-focus a fair bit. Going to do more testing tomorrow but it wouldn't get good AF on a slow walking [towards me] person. Big time hunting.

Any 90mm owners care to share their experiences?

Which body? You might need to do a firmware update.

I had the same feeling. After reading so many reports of this being one of the fastest focusing lenses in the line, I felt rather let down. Switching back and forth between the 90 and the 56, I felt the 56 was nearly the same speed, and hunted less! And although I won't totally discount some user error possibility, I've been a long time Fuji user, had all firmware up-to-date, and cycled through all combinations of focus selection style/size/etc.

On an X-T1 with the latest firmware installed on both camera and lens. Going to have a look at the 50-140 and the 2/35 next week in terms of AF speed. My 16-55/2.8 is mighty fast for a fuji lens so hoping the 50-140 is equal to that.

You know last time I used it like that I felt same. I am just busy at work and didn't spend more time looking into it. 50-140mm seemed faster or when I use for my kids baseball gives less OOF. But then I haven't used 90mm for baseball yet. It was mainly my kids in the park and I had miss focus shots with 90mm in AF-C.

I stuck the 2/90 on the X-PRO2 and it's very fast but more surprisingly the 1.2/56 is also very fast. I was able to get loads of keepers of my two kids running around the back garden having a water pistol fight. Was totally surprised at how much better the lenses are on the new camera. I doubt the 5D3 would have done as well with a similar lens. The 16-55 is lightning on it.
