4 FF cameras with 4 identical lenses would not be much cheaper than Pentax 645d.

Gang 4 FF cameras together. Each sensor gets its own lens mount. The 4 camera modules are mounted together on 4-way hinge that goes from having the 4 modules pointing straight forward (for extreme tele and 3D shots) to having them all pointing outward from each other for wide angle shots. A 4-shot panorama in one single shot, which gives a 72x48mm imaging area, minus some necessary overlap between frames.

One big problem would be making shots with close subjects not look ugly with the parallax error. Another would be how to hold the 4 modules with lenses together in a sturdy way that allows the movements.
