It seems a little early to be looking for a full frame camera from
Sony/Minolta. They have the financial resources to pull it off, but

Sony's flagship model (slated for next year) is expected to be full-frame.

there's a real question of whether there is a market yet for a pro
Sony body. All those Canon 1D shooters are going to look at the
Sony, look at the lens lineup, look at the L glass lineup, and blow a
gasket from laughing so hard.

Why would they laugh? Minolta 85mm f/1.4, Minolta 70-200 f/2.8 SSM, Minolta 200mm f/2.8, Minolta 135mm STF, Minolta 100mm f/2.8 Macro? Show me better lenses! Minolta's top lenses can stand against anyone's. Granted, Sony isn't yet making replacements for all of Minolta's glass, but they have already carried over several of the nicer ones.
