EF lenses were designed for film, so I'm not sure

I'm not sure CCD/CMOS/film has anything to do with it, otherwise Canon would have had to scrap its entire EF lens lineup.

Remember that Leica lenses are primes and have no AF motors. Zoom and AF mechanisms both make a lens larger.

I agree though, I think Canon could do something really special with a FF compact. We already know Leica is developing a new camera to sit somewhere between m4/3 and the M9, and it will not be a re-badged Panasonic. Canon could compete in this space.

This is a full frame camera:
