And if you want a bit more dof as well, well you can have that to...with FF you would have to stop down for the dof increase and lose the shutter speed

Simply increase the ISO - FF sensors typically have less noise (for the same brand/generation of camera.)

For similar generation cameras, it's more than a stop difference meaning you can have the same image with (slightly to much) less noise on FF. The D3S is at least two (maybe 3) stops better than the same generation D300S that I also own.
