If you want something small and light, consumer level DSLRs are excellent and about the same size as the Fuji lineup. Second a deciding factor for me is that the best lenses for DSLRS are made for full frame cameras. As a result they are big and heavy. APS-C specific lenses could be combine smaller size and lower cost, but they are few and far between.

This right here. If CaNikon had a quality APSC lineup, many would not have switched to mirrorless APSC, as the size and weight advantages will be minimal but the DSLRs will cost much lower with more consistent results. The cost of XT1 is only $200 shy of a latest generation fullframe camera.
