Wouldn't it be sweet, upgrade path

Just thinking that for those of us who love the Panasonic UI and the fun factor of the G9: Wouldn't it be sweet if Panasonic produced an enthusiast smaller body full-frame and lens adapter so we can use our m4/3 lenses cropped, on the new mount and sensor?

Seeing how the G9 is not much different in size than some competing FF bodies, I don't think it would be much of change as far as handling. The current Panasonic FF bodies are more in the pro league than enthusiast, and though I would love one, they are simply too much of a camera.

It would be a nice transition path for those of us not willing to switch to a different system, but would love to dabble or move into Full Frame mirrorless.

Also, quietly nagging in the back of my head is the doubt that m4/3 will remain a target of decent R&D with FF being the next big thing, and cell phone cams nibbling away at the smaller sensor cams. I would love a path forward without the fear of a monstrous initial investment.

Thought I would take the risk and start this topic as i am generating fab and assembly files that are taking forever.
