What I feel is needed now is a D5200/700D priced body with many of the E-M1's capabilities in a small non-weathersealed body combined with a genuine advertising campaign. With the success of the E-M5, DPR's 2012 camera of the year reader's choice poll winner, the words already clearly out.

A much lower priced body with those features could change the situation, but how likely is it that Oly wants to or even can compete on price?

If Canon comes out with a slightly upgraded version of the SL1/100D (e.g. with the 70D sensor, technically no problem), and maybe with a few more compact EF-S STM lenses, they are going to steal Oly's lunch.

Is Canon going to take mirrorless seriously?  Their bread and butter is DSLR.  No doubt there are internal forces doing everything they can to keep Canon mirrorless from imposing on Canon DSLR sales.  Kodak had the same issues with film and digital.  I'm not saying Canon will go out of business, but companies like to ride what has made them successful.
