Is Full-Frame simply an expensive phase for many photographers?

I guess this question would be most appropriately posted in the "Open Talk" forum but since I'm a Canon guy I'd like to ask here if you don't mind.

Clearly everybody loves the images their FF images. What's also clear from visiting other forums (NEX, Fuji, Olympus) is that many people seem to be glad to get rid of their FF kit.

"I've sold my 5D II and all my Ls to get this NEX-7 and I am finally enjoying photography again" is the kind of quote I see quite often.

I have been planning on a 5DIII for some time but before I pull the trigger I was curious as to what trend people have seen. If not related to self then perhaps with photography friends, etc.

This is a somewhat rhetorical question as I know of at least one truistic response: "It is a function of your needs and what your willing to carry".

That said I would love to hear other viewpoints.
