Another point is the cheaper Nikon primes like 50 1.8g 85 1.8g are very harsh in their renderings. Nikon seems to focus on sharpness in their lenses as a primary characteristic and they are sharp. But I found the 85 and 50 to give too much of a digital look. I think it comes from a lack of ED glass.

The Fuji lenses though are designed back from the look in the images the designers want to render. It makes for a more compelling image from using their lenses. So its not just the cameras themselves but the look from the lenses which is a compelling reason to use Fuji over Nikon.

Nikon pro lenses like 24-70 F2.8 ED are wonderful but they are large, heavy and expensive.

Nikon 70-200 F4 is a nice lens but expensive. The 70-200 F2.8 is a monster and costs a lot more than most cameras. So when talking price you must be talking about the lower end lenses which don't have aperture rings, are plastic and no ED glass.
