If you can't produce amazing images with what you already have, maybe you should find another hobby.

What makes you not go to FF in the first place?

There must be something which makes you joining the mft world. Would it be its size and weight saving, would it be the technology of tomorrow attracting you?

What so excited for FF mirrorless? Never forget the huge size of FF lenses! Actually if the current compromise mft format does not satisfy you, you could always shift to FF dslr anytime.

The Contax G system was a full frame autofocus rangefinder film camera, and the lenses made for it were sharp but they were compact. Currently there is no equivalent to the Contax G since Leica rangefinders are not autofocus. A full frame mirrorless camera that takes Zeiss lenses would be a very desirable camera, because of both compactness and image quality. It runs circles around m4/3 in terms of image quality and high ISO capability, but it is more compact and convenient to use than the Leica M, and it is likely to be cheaper than the Leica.

I own a Contax G2 and I'm still using the 45mm and 90mm on MFT bodies : the lenses are small and light and fit mirrorless cameras perfectly. Too bad that I can't use the 16, 21 and 28mm due to their protruding rear elements. If Zeiss was working with Sony to adapt the Contax G lenses on a Sony mirrorless FF, I'd buy it immediately

However, I gave read that the new Sony FF mirrorless may use a curved sensor, which would make the use of legacy lenses impossible.
