I never used one but some of those 4/3rd lenses seem to be highly regarded. Any idea of what the corners would be like? Or even the DX corners?
I just sold all my m4/3 lenses, but the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 Pro was my favorite lens of all time. I hated to sell it. I have no idea how they would work on full frame.

Well I think it is a 4/3rds, not M.43 so the 12-40 wouldn't fit at least the adapter. I most of my m43 gear as well except for the 12-40 and the Pen-F. Just can't bear to part with that one. It's too much fun to shoot.

But again, lots of people speak very highly of some of the older 4/3rds lenses. I'll have to research around and see which ones cover the full frame sensor.

This is a really interesting possibility! I have sold all but two bodies and two lenses from my micro 4/3 kit. I would love to see how large of an image circle the PL15 and O75 can cast on a Z7 sensor without vignetting. Would 5000x5000 pixels be too much to hope for? If not, I bet both of those lenses could deliver incredible resolution and, equally importantly, character.
