Your question is easy to answer: NO!
But the answer is not as easy as you may think.
You can have several reasons to go "Full Frame",

like the better resolution

Not really, the nex7 has the same resolution as A99

, better low light

Half a stop, from NEX to A99.

less problems with lens defects

Why? There's no evidence that SEL has more defects than SAL?

, better DR etc

Less than 1 EV (again according to DXO)

. All these are technical immage quality things. Then there is the DOF control: The larger the sensor, the more control you can have over DOF with the same Field of view.

This one yes, DOF is the absolutely one thing where it is compelling to go FF.

So back to my question, is DOF enough to sustain a sensor format?
