Df Lens line up

Now what about the lenses: What would be the weight and size of the closest Nikon FF equivalents to my MFT lineup: 7.5/3.5 FE, 12/2, 20/1.7, 45/1.8, 75/1.8, 7-14/4, 14-45/3.5-5.6, 40-150/4-5.6, 100-300/4-5.6?

For me, the Nikon Df *might* be the perfect compliment to my EM1, because I won't be duplicating my M43 lenses on the Nikon.

Like you have said, the FF advantage is limited to when DOF is larger than 2.8, so I will only shoot the following Nikkors on the Df: 28/1.8, 55/1.8 and 85/1.8, to cover situations when it's aesthetically desirable to have shallow DOF, not attainable even with my largest aperture Panny prime 25mm/1.4

Hopefully these primes won't be too heavy on the Nikon Df, because the only alternative would be the A7/A7R + prime but so far only one out of three primes I need is available: Zeiss 55mm/1.8. Still missing the 28mm and 85mm which means not a good time to buy into the Sony FE system yet.
