This is a false myth. Fuji lenses might be compact (some not all) but they are heavy and in many ways outdated. the f/2 lenses are the exception, but frankly I had them and sold them since they are not that great optically.

You can get the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G which is larger and is 600g or the Fuji 23 1.4 that’s smaller and is 300g. Or you can get the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G that’s bigger and is 595g or the Fuji 56 1.2 that’s smaller and 405g. And these are just two examples of primes, we haven’t even gotten into zooms. I don’t see the myth. Also fans of these Fuji lenses love the rendering of these “outdated” lenses.

After all is said and done and your photo is hanging on the wall, no one is going to know or care what camera, lens, or what post processing you used. All they care about is if the image moves them.
I’m not hung up on the Bokeh fad because I’m too busy chasing shadows.
