Then there is the reach aspect. I use 200mm/2.8 on APS-c whereas the same reach on FF would require 300/2.8. Whole both are FF lens, the 200/2.8 is considerably smaller with same metal build and weighs only a third (about 750g).

No, you would need 300mm f/1.8 on 35mm to compare to 200 f/2.8 on aps-c.  That 300mm lens doesn't exist and would be very big, very heavy, and very, very expensive!
