Curious if this exists. I love the idea of a nice compact full frame camera with minimal size. However, I'm not willing to drop leica type doe for it.

never stop learning

We'll eventually have full frame mirrorless cameras, but they probably won't be true "rangefinders" because rangefinders don't offer through-the-lens viewing (at least not if you are using the rangefinder's eyepiece viewfinder), are mechanically complex and delicate (which adds to their cost), and the mechanical rangefinder mechanism sitting atop the camera body obviously adds to the size/height of the camera body, which would of course add to the camera body's size.

Why diverting from his main concern when the original poster didn't seem being concerned about a 'true rangefinder'? He seemed longing for that kind of form factor and mirrorless has the same form factor.
