X-H2 as alternative for fullframe

I've been looking at new fullframe cameras since I sold my X-T3, made up my mind what I wanted to buy and then I saw a secondhand X-H2 in new condition at a local store...

The camera felt perfect in my hand and I loved the button layout. My main reason for jumping to fullframe was the shallower depth of field that it can achieve. Mainly for portraits.

So I thought how the following kit be as a fullframe alternative:

  • X-H2
  • 23 1.4 WR
  • 56 1.4 Sigma
  • 90 2.0 WR

All these lenses are good wide open and are either a dedicated portrait lens (90mm) at f2.8 equivalent or f2.1 equivalents. All should give me ample depth of field.

It would give me a 35,85,135 spread in fullframe terms which I think is perfect for portrait work.

Is it worth getting this for around €4000 instead of a fullframe setup for the same money?
