But why do you want FF? it's not an advantage on a camera like this, in fact it's a disadvantage which is why Canon used APS-H. Better depth of field, FOV multiplication factor, etc makes it better for sports, wildlife and general commercial use.
Rumour has it that the IV is the last APS-H camera - though that was said with the III too.
I actually like the 1.3 crop as it is a good compromise, only really being an issue at extreme wide angles.
But I also like my 5D - FF can't be beaten when it comes to shallow DOF shots or wides., Just has a look about it that seems to be not achievable with the crop cameras.
But sports and wildlife, crop is considered the way to go.
