Good point. I prefer to use Kotlin over Java.
If it was a small and personal project switching to Kotlin would be far easier.
Otherwise you have to convince others to adopt a new programming language. You could get the apt Kotlin developers to sign on. Getting inexperienced Kotlin developers to switch would be a challenge.
In a work setting you also have to convince management to switch. Which would be hard.
I know. It is not that easy. By the way, I remember reading an article describing automatic conversion from Java to Kotlin which worked fine until Lombok stepped in.
I am not Javist but perhaps you should investigate this. Maybe in future this may become a source of troubles for you when you will consider transition to Kotlin.
