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?

A bigger sensor potentially has three advantages : resolution, noise performance and DOF control.

The thing is, the latter two are dependent on the lens' aperture used in front of the sensor. Which means that there won't be much difference between a Sony FF + 35mm f2.8 and a Fuji X-E1 (or X-E2 ?) + 23mm f1.4 in terms of noise performance and DOF control. Only resolution remains as the advantage of the FF system (24 or 32 mp vs 16).

This isn't true for the entire upcoming lineup : the F4 zooms are equivalent to the ones you currently get on the NEX platform, and so is the 55mm f1.8.
