I went one step further and said why bother with full frame if you only shoot with an f4 lens and don't get the advantage of noise or DOF while losing the advantages of shooting an aps-c?

I see what you are saying, but how many full frame users only use one f4 lens? I would bet most have more than one lens and could see those benefits in other lenses like primes. The 70-200/2.8's become a 'zooming prime' with respect to DOF over what options we have on crop.
