I'm really late to the discussion hence too lazy to go through 150 posts. However, please allow me to share my point of view.

Full Frame digital cameras will hardly die soon if ever. Two main reasons lead me to believe they will be here and reign for too many years to count:

First, the FF sensor digital camera is the only class to challenge the IQ of the next bigger size sensor at a fraction of the cost. No other size can match this prowess.

Second, I believe the 24X36 sensor will remain for decades the indisputable king of hi-iso photography and since low-light photography is the last frontier for photography as we have known it for 187 years, lo-light cameras will always have a special place for the serious photographer.

For me, FF is the holy grail of digital photography.
