I'm probably all alone on this but I'm hoping one day for a FF sensor in an A6000 form factor body.

I think a FF in the A6000 body is a terrible idea...

If you want the new battery, and Ibis, then you would save maybe 50g in weight. You end up with a camera whose ergonomics are poor for shooting in manual mode. You have a body that will be very imbalanced with all of the full frame zooms and large aperture primes. Some of the parts from the other models can be reused. Would you consider purchasing an A7000 full frame camera in the A6400 body for 20-30% more than the cost of an A7iii? I don't think it is even worth the market research.

Does the new Sigma change things?  Especially given that, historically, Sony seem to take a certain pride in their miniaturisation skills and having the smallest 'whatever'.
