I don't think it will be quite that easy, or they would have done it 
already.  Part of the problem is the shutter opening size needs to be larger 
than full frame.  This was the reason the DMR was not FF, and the same 
reason, or one of the issues with the M8.  Also the electronics will have to 
be updated to handle the larger sensor.  I'm sure there are other issues but 
these are two biggies.
