Full Frame Alternative to Olympus Pens

For those worried about the crop factor (you know, that guy who sells wheat)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...feet-long.html

(there are one or two group members who might even be inclined to 'knock up' one of these, bet it would take nice photos of Lechlade)

I feel sorry for the often under appreciated focal plane shutter.

Now that is dedication to resolution! With his mechanical expertise, I'm surprised he hasn't devised a method to keep the bellows from sagging.

I guess if you want great detail in a large (extra large) billboard sized black & white photo, then I guess the pain might be worth it (if the pay matches it). Each to their own.
