Just you wait Jeffery. Sony has got a full frame sensor ans they are 
testing it. The commercial process seems however some different than 
before as is not Nikon the first Sony customer but ?Sony himself! So 
we'll have in some months a Sony FF that will be able of using Carl 
Zeiss lenses. Not bad even if the first CZ lenses will be Contax N 
lenses modified. After that this sensor will be supplied to everybody, 
Nikon, Pentax, etc.I dream on a Leica R with a full frame sensor back.  
BTW Sigma "plastic" primes are no designed for lasting but optically are 
good lenses.
