Common sense replies and you have confirmed what I thought.

Looking at the throat diameter and registration distance of the Xpro1 I don't see how an FF solution is possible using X mount.

An FF version, if launched in the future, would almost certainly require a new design with a wider diameter mount and probably a longer registration distance.

Doesn't mean we wont see FF CSC cameras in the future, but they probably wont be "compact" they will just be competing with FF SLRs. With mount adapters they will of course work on the smaller APSC bodies.
