  • Those companies will eventually introduce mirrorless cameras for their SLR lens mounts, providing the technical benefits of mirrorless (minus the size benefits of the reduced registration distance lens mount)

Canon already tried this with an EF adapter for the EOS-M. Nobody other than forum basement trolls are using EF glass on the M. Take a Canon Elph, duct tape your EF 50mm 1.4 to the front of it to get a good sense of the ergonomics we're talking about.

  • The size benefits of the reduced registration distance lens mount aren't all that significant unless you step down in sensor size and accept the compromises of doing that

You might not be aware, but Leica and other companies have been making small full frame lenses for 80 years or so. The size savings is "significant" when you don't have to worry about a flipping mirror.
