I cannot imagine anyone switching

A mirrorless MILC camera will be an interesting and compelling product.

And some people will love to own one. But I cannot imagine any current M4/3 owners ditching their cameras and lenses to buy one. I can see a few adding a mirrorless FF MILC camera, but I just see anyone waking up one day and deciding "I really don't want a small camera anymore."

This new camera will not be small. Let me correct that. It will be smaller than a FF DSLR, but it will be a lot larger than any M4/3 camera. And the size problem will get worse if you ever attach a FF lens to it.

The people who bought M4/3 cameras bought them for their smaller size, lower weight, and relatively good image quality. If they wanted better IQ, they would have bought a FF camera.

The market for a mirrorless FF camera will come from FF users who want a smaller FF camera, and not from the existing MILC camera users who have changed their minds about wanting to carry around a lighter kit.
