I'm still waiting for an explanation of why FF cameras are so
expensive especially after the market has increased so much.

Cameras are computers with a lens connected to them. A bigger sensor

larger sensor scales up everything.

Only if it has more pixels. Some of the larger sensors just use larger
pixels, for better sensitivity and lower noise.
