Nikon 50mm f1.8G 72 x 52.5mm 185g £149.00
Fuji 35mm f1.4R 65 x 54.9mm 187g £429.00

the Nikon is rated as optically better, although the Nikon doesn't feature the pretend aperture ring.

however most FF lenses are larger and heavier than APS-C ones

the new Fuji 23 f1.4 is a good example when compared to the Canon 35mm f2 IS

Canon EF 35mm f2 IS 62.6 x 77.9mm 335g £469
Fuji 23mm f1.4 XF 72 x 63mm 300g £849
