Downsides to A9 II?

I'm a Fujifilm shooter interested in the Sony A9 II because of its excellent autofocus capabilities (Fujifilm is known to be acceptable, but not great, in that regard). Recently, I've taken to shooting faster subjects like running dogs and some wildlife. But I do value the smaller and lighter aspects of my Fujifilm gear. It has been a good compromise for me between my old Olympus equipment and full-frame camera systems.

But the A9 II, combined with f/4.0 zooms, is not very much heavier or larger than my Fujifilm stuff.

So... Am I going to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire?

What have folks found to be the downsides to the A9 II and f/4/0 lenses? Surely it can not be all honey and roses.
