It is interesting to see all the different opinions here, but don't forget that cell phone cams are currently dominant for pictures.   As the smaller sensors get better at handling noise, there will be no need for large sensors.   That's the future.  Full frame will still be there, but more for pros.  I am amazed at what my iPhone can do right now.   Sales of consumer grade phone has been decimated by the smart phones.  Capability of these sensors will continue  to improve.

And that isn't surprising considering the portability aspect of it. Feature consolidation is key, in an easily manageable size. Also worth noting is that we're also looking at software processing based imaging, where even DoF issues are being handled (and this area is likely to grow). Don't want everything in focus? Well, turn on to "background defocus" effect.
