The XT1 & 56mm are nice. But I prefer the Df with the humble inexpensive 1.8 85mm D (I have both combos). The weight difference between XT1 and Df is about 300 gram for the body. Comparable lenses weight about the same Fuji 1.4 35mm versus Nikon 1.8 50 G, Fuji 18-55mm versus Nikor 24-85mm VR etc. The Df sensor, AF, performance (turning a XT1 on or waking it up from sleep take an eternity), OVF smoke the XT1. The Df costs more than the Fuji, but comparable Nikon lenses are a bargain.

I tried both at the Photography Show at the NEC a few months back and I prefered the Fuji X-T1. I'm a big Nikon fan having been shooting Nikon SLR's since the 1980's. I still have my trusty old Nikon F3, and the X-T1 is the best digital camera I have owned. It feels better in my hands than the Df did, and the lenses have aperture rings - something modern Nikon lenses lack.
