I would be surprised if they went for a DSLR vs. a full-frame mirrorless. They simply don't have the tech capability to compete with Cannon and Nikon. They'd have far more success dropping that completely and getting into mirror less, where users are already accustomed to slightly slower cameras with less frills. They would easily eat the competition alive (assuming they can improve high ISO capabilities).

High ISO covers a multitude of faults.  My Fuji X-E1 shines bright at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.  I can use small aperture lenses indoors even with the flea-powered on-camera flash.

I think Sigma knows these things and it might be a significant reason why they won't be getting into mirrorless in the near term.
