There have been many formats. Many that are larger than the "full frame" 135 format. 35mm film cameras became widely used and kind of became the de facto standard. The term full frame has just become kind of an arbitrary reference. I'd be pretty surprised if Panasonic releases a FF camera. It would require developing an entirely new line of lenses. Just don't see either Oly or Panasonic going down that path. But I'm certainly not an industry insider.

Olympus explicitly told that they weren't considering FF in a recent interview, not even in a compact body a la RX1 (I think it was published by DPreview at the beginning of this year).
