Full frame this, SLR that. For me what it comes down to is what would you want to lug around all day around your neck.

For me - the left wins!

Odd choice in lenses don't you think? Try putting the 10-23 on the front of the X-T1 or the 16-85 on the front of the Df. Or even better the 35 on the X-T1 and the 50 F1.8G on the Df.

I would have thought the most logical comparison was the Fuji 18~55 vs the Nikon 24~70, and he'd still have made his point. Small primes even it out to an extent, but are you only going to use small primes? Are you going to carry just one lens all the time?

For me the Df ended up being the replacement for my X-Pro1. It's all about the sensor (not just high ISO, but the way it renders colours).

If the bigger sensor is what matters most to you then you made the right choice. Personally I was shooting a Nikon D700 FF camera and have switched to Fuji X-T1. In fact I still have both but I rarely use the Nikon. I did try the X-T1 and a Nikon Df at the Photghraphy Show at the NEC before making my choice.
