The only other FF mirrorless camera is over $7k.

$4k is a good price.

The RX1 is mirrorless and full frame and not over 7k.

The fact that a camera exists that is over 7k doesn't make 4k a good price. This is faulty logic.

There are now sub 2k FF DSLR's...there's no reason that a mirrorless couldn't be done in this price range.

They may be able to make the body for less than $2K, but it's going to be pretty much impossible or mind blowingly expensive for them to make glass worthy of an FX sensor for any reasonable price. The most they might be able to do will be some slow primes and even slower zooms. I forget where I read it but the RX1 has built in algorithms to correct the distortion in the lens. And again that is just a 2.8. It's a bit of a silly exercise.

It does appear that FX DSLRs are getting smaller and cheaper. That makes more sense to me. I think the DSLR form factor makes sense for that kind of performance. Something like an FX EOS 100D with some smartly shrunken lenses could definitely work.
