Why should I create icon-components when I have an icon-font?

I often see people create components of icons, while I have the ‘luxury’ of using an icon font, such as FontAwesome. I’m experienced, but wouldn’t call myself a Figma Expert (or Sketch, for that matter). Therefor I was wondering about the pros and cons in the discussion of icons vs icon-font? For example in Buttons, form items or other reusable components, why should I revert to somewhat flattened icons, when I can have an icon font that’s more dynamic?
