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

Nikon's current 1" sensor, used in the J3 and V2, is below par even for its size class. Nikon will have to make a quantum leap in sensor performance for this rumored P8000 to be able to compete with the G1X MII:
