They may release a mirrorless camera with a sensor the size of MFT, but there's no way in "the eternal hot place" they are going to release a camera with a MFT mount.

That said, even if they DO release a mirrorless camera with a smaller sensor, what lenses will they use? Who wants to use FF or APS-C sized lenses on a smaller body - what's the point? If they introduce a new mount with smaller lenses, then they are basically behind everybody else like Panasonic, Olympus, Sony, Samsung, etc.

What is their strategy? Hmmm....
