Re: Upgrade path to full frame.

No they are not. With a speedbooster yes. They are APSc lenses and Sony Emount full frame lenses are called FE lenses. As pointed out the 10-18 will work in some ranges (not all) on a FF Sony but I think that is the exception not the rule.

A7r and A7 will automatically go to crop mode on APSc lenses and A7r becomes a 16mp APSc camera at that point. A7 is less mp.

You should not though consider them to be useable on FF as that is more of a gimmick. Who pays for FF body and then settles for a fraction of the mp and FOV from an APSc lens? It might be useful for birding to get extra reach but I can't see it being acceptable all the time.
