I don't think the OP is interested in focusing at infinity or slow wide zooms. I think he/she is looking for wide + shallow dof. Which is really where FF shines. I love some of the shots I see from full frame cameras with the Sigma 35mm f1.4 shot wide open. Very cool look to the images IMO. But yeah, it's almost impossible to get that type of look with a DX camera.

Just trying to illustrate the basics behind it all, don't know why I picked the f5.6 I agree about the FF and also the OP might consider a fisheye, too. I know most people think it's a one trick pony but I like what it can do concerning shallow DOF.
