A crop sensor will allow you to have more DoF without stopping down...and in some cases, stopping down means raising ISO or lower shutter speed too much. So from an exposure perspective, there is an advantage (though I admit, it's a minor one). When it comes to DoF however, I agree that FF with DoF control is fine...but if you particularly want to shoot at F1.2, and the DoF is too shallow...maybe try it on a crop instead.

If you are shooting at f1.2 for ISO purposes, a crop sensor would gain you some DOF but then cost you 2 stops since there is no crop sensor that even comes close in regards to noise.
