Re: Physics must be irrelevant in this fantasy world...

To quote the OP, "Don’t be so pedantic or a bore."

I can't help but think of someone else who had a fantasy.  Borat wanted to meet Pamela Anderson.  The chances of a Fuji MF camera in an X-T3 sized body are about as great as Borat getting to spend a romantic evening with Pamela.

Nope. There is a Bronica MF rangefinder and the Mamiya 6, 7, and 7ii.

I didn't recall the Bronica. However, the Mamiya range finders (6 and 7) were ILC cameras and much more flexible and not a fixed lens cameras like the Fuji.  The Texas Leica was more in lines of what the OP was desiring.

The Mamiya's were nice cameras.  I had an RB67 for years.

It has a weird portrait-oriented "456" format instead of the usual 645 horizontal:

I'm sure you're having some fun trolling the forum with this thread, and honestly, it's just entertaining enough that I'll resist the urge to lock it and move on [for now]. Meanwhile, at some point, hopefully the laws of physics might enter into the conversation, because so far, they've pretty well been ignored here.

Frankly, I'd also like to be able to fly from Portland to NYC in 5 minutes or so, too. And if the airlines could manage that, they could also "shut up and take my money." However, since they're also bound by the laws (and limitations) of physics, I won't expect to see that happen anytime soon... same goes with your wishlist item. Good luck with that.

Finally, you might consider the fact that MF cameras aren't large simply because designers think that photographers want huge cameras. There might be some other reasons behind it.

You have to have some humor... Please don’t take the human element out of photography and discussing itv and turn it into a sterile Spock like discussion.  I know that you don’t know me from dirt, but I am actually hilarious  in real life.  I love my X100 and dream of a similar camera for making landscape images.   Now if I wanted a 4x5 sensor in an Olympus XA rangefinder than I would be looney tunes.  I respectfully implore you to dream a little bit.

PS. I miss my XA that was stolen.

Believe it or not, I really do have a pretty well developed sense of humor as well (I’ve been told it may be the only sense I have). I might suggest gently that in this rather contentious environment we’re all in, sometimes attempts at humor can be easily missed. Let me request that you employ simple things like and other such “tools” to make it more clear to us sometimes dense Mods who have to wade through lots of posts while trying to keep the peace. Humor and trolling can be closely related and at times difficult to distinguish. I appreciate your clarification, but please do consider helping those of us who might be just a touch “humor [humour] challenged” these days.

Fair enough?

It is all impossible until someone does it. I think Fuji can get the package smaller if they go fixed lens.

Seems to me you are from the school of 'thought' that suggests that laws of physics are really guidelines. (I think Terry Pratchett is the source here]

Honey, I shrunk the MF camera!

I  think your nick can be shortened to the first five letters. Bye

Let’s end this trollfest now, shall we...

After having had a little fun at our expense, I think it’s time to put the OP’s thread out of its (and our) misery. The notion suggested here was absurd from the start and clearly just intended to stir the pot.  Last time I checked, that pretty well defines trolling.
