The goal is worthwhile, but perhaps unreachable with that tech. The High Res mode of Oly bodies shows the potential. Bayer arrays lose a lot of resolution and compromise color.

In the Oly HR mode, every pixel location is captured with each sensel color, achieving what the Foveon sensor does with silicon depth, although perhaps more precisely(?).

The effect of no Bayer interpolation on resolution is quite impressive. Shoot in HR mode, then downsample to native sensor size, and much more detail is clear than on a straight shot. Color and handling of out of gamut highlights are better, too. <http://www.moosemystic.net/Gallery/tech/E-M5II_HR/TreeLights.htm>

I would just be pleased  by a better four thirds sensor, as example,  something 
about 24MP with on chip PDAF.

The difference in practice between 20 and 24 MP is almost nothing. It's a 10% increase in nominal linear resolution, which is on the border or below what's visible in a real world sensor system.

I think the sensors in the Oly E-M1 series meet the criteria; PDAF and comparable resolution. With static subject and camera, the HR mode blows far past it.

I bought an E-M1 II, new, for $899 in one of their sales, 11 months ago. 
Perhaps there will more sales.

That would shut me up if affordable.
