Frankly I'm looking at the Fuji side right now. I must have a decent EVF to enjoy a camera. NEX-7 had a number of things going for it: light weight, size, resolution, but EVF wasn't one of those things. I tolerated it, barely. Looks like A6000 isn't the camera I will want to upgrade to, and Sony's new focus on FF puts the future of their APS-C lens lineup into question. I don't want FF. It's huge, heavy, expensive, and unwieldy, that's why I sold my D800E: I rarely took it out of the backpack. If Sony wants to push FF on me, I'll just take my business elsewhere.

Yes, the Fuji is much smaller and more wieldy. All of 19g lighter (with kit lens) too. You can see them side-by-side here: http://camerasize.com/compact/#487.396,520.359,ha,t

Put a 27-82.5 f/2.8-4 stabilized lens on that A7, and then compare. Fuji has the best lens lineup as well, something that Sony won't be able to match for years. Quieter shutter, better controls, better viewfinder, better colors, better UI, firmware updates that actually add features.

2.8-4 on APS-C is 4-5.6 on Full frame. So, if you'll follow the link already provided, you'll see that comparison, within a few percent, is already set up for you.

But, if you buy the theory that F number is F number, even on a small sensor, I would say to look at Olympus or Nikon, where you can get some small F1.2 lenses. Don't stop at APS-C. The Nikon 1 is also much smaller than that X-T1.
