That said: there is no such thing as full frame, because by the very definition of it, there is no lens that I know of that uses the whole frame of the sensor (quite rightly so, because it would have severe vignetting.)

Funny you say "because by the very definition of it":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full-frame_digital_SLR

A full-frame digital SLR is a digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) fitted with an image sensor that is the same size as a 35 mm (36×24 mm) film frame

Funny you quote wikipedia which is a source of knowledge but is maintained also by many laymen. You can even add info yourself, it's more a democratic knowledge base then exact science.

Full Frame is when the system and lenses are designed for it's dedicated purpose. So technically Nikon 1 and dedicated lenses is full frame, Pentax Q is full frame, (m)43 is full frame, APS-C with EF-S/DX lenses is full frame, 35mm is full frame with EF etc. lenses etc. etc. etc.
