The rumor mill is already starting to turn with reports of an ultra fast Fujifilm medium format lens arriving in 2021. Historically, the widest aperture medium format lens has been the Mamiya Sekor 80mm f/1.9. This lens on a 645 back would be similar to a 50mm f/1.2 lens on a 35mm full-frame camera. 

More recently, Hasselblad produced their very own XCD 80mm f/1.9 lens. Although, due to it operating on a smaller medium format sensor, this lens is similar to a 65mm f/1.5 lens on full-frame.
