... to establish a stronghold before the elephants come a trampling

This is from Thom Hogan's blog

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.

Tom Hogan fails to really discuss the real news; the imminent explosion of FF compact cameras in the marketplace. And some of these new cameras will retain the the ability to offer dual-lens solutions. Sony FF+ e-mount hybrid. That was scheduled to be announced last week but wasn't for some unknown reason. Canon's had it since 2003 with EF/EFS hybrid cameras (the Digital Rebel 300D...they only needed to miniaturize. (Tom does mention the new EOS B.) The forthcoming Olympus 4/3 + m43 hybrid camera. The Panasonic m43/FF hybrid.
