Absolutely, positively, not a chance on this earth that's ever happening.

Hogan's articles do a great job for why they're written.....promote his site and make him money.
I totally agree with Greg.
Sales of all cameras, including DSLRs declined in 2013, but mirrorless actually declined less than DSLRs. I think John G hit it on the head when he said that the DSLR will become a niche camera. That would also be supported by the history of cameras. History teaches us that cameras will trend toward smaller even while improving picture quality. Mirrorless ILC is just history marching on, and it will at some point overtake the big DSLR in total sales.

I agree with John's statement. I also cannot see Oly investing in a whole new lineup of FF lenses, especially when there is so much stiff competition out there.
Olympus OMD-M5, HLG6 grip, Olympus 4/3rd 35mm macro lens, Panny/Leica 25mm, f1.4, Olympus 17mm, Canon Pro 9000 Mk II Printer, Canon MP990 Printer, Slik U212 Tripod, Manfrotto monopod, MMF3 converter.

I don't know why they would do it, but they could possibly make a FF camera that accepted Nikon or Canon FF lenses.

its the antithesis of what a company like Olympus is though isnt it

it really would make more sense for them to make lenses for an existing mount, like C or N or Sony

I have no trust anymore in Olympus. So no I would not buy it.
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

Nikon D800, Olympus E-500
