I'm using my D850 for studio work and art duplication, and Fuji X-T3 for most work outside the studio, including portraits and editorial jobs. After using the Nikon gear for everything over the years, it now feels pretty cumbersome compared to the Fuji (or any other good small-sensor camera I'm betting ). I'm now spoiled by having autofocus points cover the whole viewing area with the Fuji, so it clearly has the advantage for candid and editorial work. In the studio, the optical viewfinder on the D850 is better than an EVF in low light, and when printing really large (36 x 48" ) for clients, the full frame camera has the edge there. I'm not cheerleading for Fuji per se, just noting that both formats can be used effectively, and at this point, one is not inherently better than the other.


I would also suggest that the X-T3 is a great low-light camera, despite your theory that small sensors are not as good as full-frame for that use. I have done lots of stage work with a Nikon D4 and 70-210 f/2.8, and also with the X-T3 and 50-140 f/2.8, and the rate of keepers is much higher with the Fuji. Noise at ISO 3200 is not a problem with the Fuji, and the focus accuracy is better, since there is no fine-tuning of lenses needed with mirrorless cameras.

We've come a long way since the days of if you wanted great low light performance the obvious choice was full frame.  Modern DX cameras, like my D7500, compete very well against my full frame cameras.  I know, I've done a ton of test comparisons and am blown away by how competitive the D7500 is.
