I found a really good article by Michael Reichman at the Luminous Landscape – covering his thoughts on full-frame vs other (smaller) frame formats, in today’s digital world.
It’s now been more than a decade since digital imaging hit its stride and changed the way in which we do photography. Back in the day, I was convinced that the future lay in Full Frame digital.
But then a funny thing started to happen about three or four years ago.

Once pixel count got to about 16 Megapixels, the number of pixels itself stopped being something to pursue just for its own sake.–
