You may be able to build a decent FF system that is cheaper than an equivalent Fuji X system, but you would have to go with Canikon and be very limited in your lens selection if you wish to stay under Fuji's pricing. Alternatively, Sony's A7 will give you a compact body but with higher priced, larger lenses.

It is interesting. If your goal is to build a system of primes, and you want 20-24-35-50-85 mm equivalent focal lengths, and limit yourself to 1.8 lenses on FF (at least in the 35-50-85 range, wider lenses will be slower in both systems, naturally), both Fuji X & Nikon will run you almost exactly $5k by today's prices. That's with an XE-2 on the Fuji side, and a DF on the Nikon side.

The Nikon system will be about 550 grams heavier, but most of that weight is in the body, where it should be.

I do like the Fuji system, and the cost of entry is much lower ($3k for the DF & 50mm, vs. $1900 for the XE-2 & 35mm). But as you start buying lenses the cost evens out.

Of course, you could opt for a D610 instead of the DF and make the Nikon system a fair bit cheaper, but of course the weight goes up.
