No, not at all.

The reason I am into m43 at all is for a smaller lighter rig, but without completely compromising everything that makes SLRs awesome (changeable lenses, full control, RAW, a viewfinder, etc).

The problem with either a FF or a APS-C mirrorless is that while the bodies can be as light if not lighter than a m43 camera, the lenses cannot. If you compare lenses between m43 and APS-C the weight literally gets cut in half (e.g. 600g to 300g).

So, as I said at the start, I would not consider a mirrorless FF NEX for the same reason that I didn't buy a NEX to begin with: light lenses.
