A good macro lens can be one of the most versatile lenses in your bag, offering not only the ability to take extreme close-up images with high levels of detail, but also portraits at a flattering focal length and with high levels of sharpness. For Fuji shooters, there is the XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens, and this excellent video review shows what you can expect from it in practice.
