If Panasonic thinks they have 2-3 years they really underestimate the market. With sensor prices falling down (with acceleration) they have 1-2 years max to set their foot on the market or be underdog for years. Sony tested FF solutions and rushing FF mirrorless either this year or early next year. I would assume Canon, Nikon, and Pentax are feverishly working on that too. The first comer will have huge advantage in this market, which is expected to explode soon.

Sony is hot on the mirrorless FF market.  and they of course released one in 2012.  But I don't think Pana can make the shift sooner than '15.

Also I don't think Canon and Nikon are focused on mirrorless FF, they are going to change the mid level DSLRs to FF.  Basically switch from APS-C to FF on $1500 range cameras.

So the competition for the FF mirrorless may be 1st Sony and then whomever will be next, maybe Pana.
