It won't be possible to use the X-Pro 1 body (5.51 x 3.23 x 1.69″) to fit a FF sensor and keep the hybrid OVF/EVF viewfinder.The latest Sony A7 has no OVF using a similar body size (5.00 x 3.70 x 1.89″).

The XPro1 is still bigger than the A7. I think it's possible.

I guess the pixels race is not over yet while the 24 and 36 M pixels would still attract consumers to get a larger sensor in a relatively small package.

Fuji may also find an "hybrid" marketing solution in the current X-Pro body size: using a 24 M pixels APS-C, add weather seals. Doing so, Fuji will compete with the A7 and yet keep intact the current X lenses compatibility.

Weather sealing body has little value when the lenses can't even keep the dust out.
