The biggest difference I would see is the lens. I wouldn't put the Nikon 50/1.4 in the same category as the Fuji 35mm f1.4. Even going to the Canon camp and using a 5D/5DII I would have the same issue with the Canon 50mm 1.4. Fuji really nailed the 35mm lens in this system.

50mm prime is the weakest focal length in Nikon's lineup, and the Fuji 50/1.4 is beautiful. So yeah. There's really no apples-to-apples prime in Nikon's lineup.

The closest 1:1 comparisons would be the Zeiss if you wanted to spend $125 more than the Fuji, or the 60mm f/2.8 Nikkor if you weren't after the equivalent f/1.8 of the Fuji.
