Larger sensors cost exponentially more to manufacture.

A FF 3:2 sensor will always need a larger lens than an m43 sensor (everything else being equal).

Smartphones with smaller sensors are killing P&S cameras and most other camera market segments too.

MY guess is the mirrorless FF camera is similar to the Sony SACD ploy they tried a while back (and 3DTV more recently).   Create a more expensive product and try to get consumers to fall for it.  Of course Sony got crushed by lower quality MP3 players instead, and are losing billions in the TV market.  We all know how this will end.
