The big boys has made their preparation and may soon respond in a big way. First they discount heavily their lower end DSLR products and now it seems their secret mirrorless weapons are about ready.

No, I think it's the other way around. Time is running out for canon and Nikon and their current offerings don't cut it. They can only go so far with discounting entry level dslrs before they lose a lot of money and their existing offerings bring zero to the table. How can anyone take seriously a company that thought it was a good idea to launch the EOS-M? There is clearly something broken there. Nikon has an offering that sells because they had to cut the prices in half And that competes for IQ with compacts.

neither of these indicates the innovation necessary to even cause ripples in the pond.
