FUJI X-T2 or Nikon D610

Hi everybody,

I'm so confuse what to choose. New I have using Nikon D7000 (is not mine, but I use it about year or more) with my own Sigma 18-35 F1.8 (is awesome lens, and love F1.8), so now I should return nikon and wanna buy some new camera.

I am not any specific kind of photograpfer, i shot everything, but mostly landscape, milkyway (astrophotograpy), long exposure shots, at night, when traveling. Maybe in the future I thing shoting weddings or potraits. I don't fo any video.

So I confuse do I get Full frame (which is like desire, I'm a bit gear geek at this question ) or take some thing like X-T2. at this moment these cameras cost the same D610 - 1150€ and X-T2 - 1100€.

I think choosing between something like these kits:

Nikon D610 (1150€) with Samyang 14mm F2.8 (380€) or Tamron 15-30mm F2.8 (850€, but is very heavy) and nikon 50mm F1.8 (200€). Maybe in future nikon 85mm F1.8 or sigma 85 F1.4, Tamron 70-210 F4 (740€). But I don't really know Tamron 15-30 or Tamron 24-70, what is better for everyday, I like wide angle, but new I only have 18mm (APS-C) so is only 27mm FF and in many situaction is too narrow.

Fuji X-T2 (1100€) or with 18-55 F2.8-4 kit (1450€). Lens would be Samyang 12mm F2.0 (290€ and 56mm F1.2 (850€). Maybe 10-24mm F4 but is expensive and too dark for astrophotography. 50-140mm F2.8 (1300€) I read that is superb tele lens but is very expensive and heavy. Downside of Fuji that is APS-C and small choice of lens, pro - weight.

Now I'm traveling with Nikon D7000 and Sigma 18-35, that weight about 1600g, so I get use to this weight. Yes lighter equipment is would be better but is not in the first place. so can you hep me make correct decision. What you would choose?

P.S. sorry for my english mistakes .
