Thank you all for your responses.

I should have clarified that for 20ish - 50ish mm f/4 I was certainly giving bigger weight allowance.

The Fujifilm XF 16-80 f/4 exceeds your focal range request and weighs 440g.  That's not featherweight but it's pretty good for the focal range and build quality.

anyway I just don’t feel confident that Nikon is committed to APSC size Z mount lenses. So feels like it’s a safer bet to go with Fuji.

I agree. Fujifilm is tops in APS-C. They have a full range of bodies, and a full range of lenses with the exception of long telephoto. If you ever need one of those, you can use Nikon F mount or Canon EF mount lenses with an adapter.

I was on the fence for a long time on whether to stay with APS-C and switch to Fujifilm, or to stay with Nikon and switch to FF. I ended up choosing the latter, but my kit is heavier, no doubt.
