To replicate my 50/1.2 on FF, you would need something like an 8.9/0.21 lens, which would be faster than the theoretical limit of f/0.5, not to mention the practical one f/1 or so.

f/0.5 is in the air. You just need to have rear element touching the sensor to have high-index (of 2.38) to be in contact with sensor, making f/0.21 possible.
