At the same DOF (and shutter speed and scene illumination and number of MP) there's no real advantage to FF over a smaller sensor of the same general generation.

I'm still trying to process this, but I don't think I agree with you.

If I let the camera make the decisions and shoot in Program mode with my full frame camera, it defaults to f4.0, 1/80 for almost all natural light, indoor images and adjusts the ISO to whatever setting is necessary to provide a good, noise free, image.

I don't know of any one inch sensor camera that's going to come anywhere near the quality it provides at f4.0, 1/80.

Naturally, if I'm shooting in aperture priority, I might choose a smaller aperture that would produce a narrower DOF and require a lower ISO setting.

Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way.
