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

You should compare to the non IS version:

Dimensions 6.86 x 4.32 cm
Weight 7.41 oz (210 g)
$309

IMO, it seems like mirrorless lenses cannot take much advantage of the short flange distance since they have to account for digital sensor problem with acute lighrays. Look how the fast & tiny Leica lenses perform on the Xtrans.
