To me the point of FF is that it delivers (short of medium format) the ultimate IQ for digital cameras, the sacrifice being weight/size.

Now, whilst the bodies may only need to be marginally larger, to get the full performance out of the system the lenses will need to be noticeably bigger and heavier than their APS-C counter parts, a lens with the same optical quality as the 18-55mm 2.8-4 on a FF setup would be bordering on the size of the Nikon 24-70mm 2.8. Therefore you're not that far off the overall size and weight of cameras like the Nikon D600.

The point of these mirrorless systems is to save weight whilst maintaining a generally acceptable IQ with APS-C being the sweet spot. In my mind if you're going to go full frame you might as well go the whole hog and get the D600 and have all the associated benefits of such a mature system.
