Looks like Nikon may take everyone by surprise with the upcoming 1" sensor P8000.

We will see. It would be hard for it to beat a f2 lens on a larger sensor, though, unless they go f1.4 or something.

When it comes to image quality they can beat the Canon f/2 lens by just having a better sensor, which is likely. For DOF control the difference is very small assuming the Nikon is f/3 at tele. If I had to guess which of the two will have the better lens (regarding corner quality etc.) I would give Nikon better chances. But let's wait for the final specs and reliable reviews before judging

Agreed. Even with the rumored 2.0-3.0 lens, the only place The Mark II would have an advantage is at the wide end. Canon's half-stop (at best) noise advantage at high ISO would be pretty much wiped out by down-resing the 20MP pics to 13MP.  Canon would have shallower DOF, if that matters much at the 24mm-equiv. end.

At the tele end, the faster lens on the P8000 would virtually balance out the Mark II's larger sensor noise and DOF advantage.

So what your left with is a camera with virtually equal IQ, in a smaller, lighter package.  Same for the next Sony RX.  If they build in an EVF, it becomes hard to make a case for the Canon.
