First, FF E-Mount is real. You can buy one now:

Notice the price. The question is how long until that sensor can be made cheap enough to fit in a $1.5k or under camera. Right now it's only in the RX1, A99, and VG900, basically the high-end/pro line. It's coming, it's a question of when the cost makes sense (and lenses are available).

The VG900 shows the intent to make E-Mount FF lenses. The current Sony lenses (like 18-55) will almost definitely not support FF. So new lenses will be needed. I would expect those are underway (perhaps as Zeiss models) and we will see those released for the VG900 first. Then once cost gets inline, the NEX will be released.

If you want FF now, I would get a Canon 5D or Nikon D700 now and plan to sell when the NEX comes.
