A full-frame, mirror-less mount can accommodate smaller, rangefinder type normal and wide angle lenses.  However, as the rear element approaches closer to the sensor plane the "rays" of light impinge on the sensor at extreme angles at the edges.  Currently this eliminates the possibility of an AA filter.  Even without that filter it is difficult to pull off an acceptable result.  Even Leica has had difficulty here.

Of course i am considering only current technology.
