Whether anyone would switch may depend on what lenses any FF 'NEX' would use. If it took A mount lenses then there would be a strong incentive to stay with Sony if the user had a number of such lenses but if the FF required entirely new FF E mount lenses then it might be better to switch systems as a totally new set of options would present itself.

If a camera uses A-mount lenses, then it would be a DSLR/DSLT replacement, I would think.  I think Sony is going to go down that route.  But if you make something with an e-mount and an included a-mount adapter, you could get the best of both worlds -- use your A-mount lenses, and if appropriate e-mount lenses appear, you can use those.  My guess is that Sony will get there eventually.

It might be wise not to rush into this market as matters may change rapidly.
