Something that a lot of people overlook, but an advantage to having a larger sensor is that you can choose your resolution. You can shoot in cropped modes when you want to, with all the advantages of the smaller format. You switch up to FF when you want the benefits of the larger sensor. You can't do that with a smaller sensor camera.

Actually you can

exactly the same as using a 1.4 adapter to get aps-c on FF loses a stop

a .7 adapter on aps-c get you a stop and return then lens to it original focal length.

We each find our own 'sweet-spot' when it comes to camera choice.
