FF: better IQ

Unless you want greater DoF, for instance for macro shots of insects.

You can't stop down on FF?

You can stop the 100mm Laowa down to f/45,

No, the lens is f/2.8 to f/22. The f/45 you see on the images in the linked post comes from setting the lens to f/11 and then adding the effect of the two 2X teleconverters.

and I think adding two tele converters will effectively stop it down further.

Adding two 2X teleconverters moves the range from f/2.8 - f/22 to f/11 - f/90. On top of that, as the magnification goes up the effective aperture gets smaller.

I don't know if there's a comparable lens for m4/3. If not, your point is correct.

You can use the same lens on micro four thirds. In fact, I have done so (and on APS-C). I use it on full frame because I get better focus peaking than with my micro four thirds cameras (and I don't get focus peaking at all on my APS-C camera). The choice of which camera and sensor size to use has, for me, nothing to do with the amount of DOF I can get. I want as much as I can get from a single shot, and with any of my setups, FF, APS-C and micro four thirds, I can push the aperture to the point where the images become unusable for my purposes.
