Only if Sony buy them

Is Sony offering their FF sensor?

I assume that they would be willing to sell it.

But Olympus have no 135 format system to use such a sensor in.

Will Olympus take it and come up with a mirrorles FF?

No, I don't think so.

Sony may end up buying Olympus, and producing Zuiko branded lenses for their 135 bodies (which would almost certainly all be mirrorless in a few years).

My view is that if they want to build a larger format system from scratch they may as well devise something with a competitive advantage over 135 systems.
