Am I missing something, looking at all the lens available for NEX FF it wouldn't even improve my low light performance from my NEX6/7? It's a FF but most of the lens available are F/4?

These are zooms with constant f/4 and kept relatively small. They are already better than equivalent APS-C zoom lenses.

If you go with fast primes, use legacy lenses, FF A mount on the LA-EA4 FF adapter for AF, or be patient for more FE lenses.

The 35mm/f2.8 is kept small to match RX1 w/ 35/f2.0 in size.

The (standard) 52mm/f1.8 is also fairly small.

Fast FE zoom and prime lenses will be larger, bulkier and pricier. They would defeat the compactness of the system. Think of them more as specialty lenses. Plus they compete against legacy glass.

Most FF aplications will be f/2.8 and above, f/4 is quite liveable. Besides, I already have legacy FF f/1.4 primes, like many do. Plus the digital sensors loose efficiency below f/2.0, per DxO.
