Or needing to cover a size that requires a lens a rare as hen's teeth.

    If and when I decide to shoot my 47" Hermagis Aplanat (rapid rectilinear) that's exactly what I will do. Mount it temporarily in a dark room window, or a giant box, and SEE what it covers. Make plate holders accordingly.

    Does it fit on 4/3 (Lumix for example) with an adapter ring?

    It does but the adapter has to be long and strong. You will also get very well corrected image because lens were best corrected in the middle. It would be an interesting experiment indeed.
