If there were miracles - Sony, Fuji, Panasonic, Sigma or Olympus would have use it. Canon is years behind now on sensor technology so I would not expect much surprise form them there.

Well, indeed, the only company you forgot to mention had already performed the miracle you mentioned with its mirrorless product almost a year ago.

"The J1 and V1 feature an all-new adaptive AF system that Nikon is calling 'Hybrid' AF. Hybrid AF incorporates both contrast-detection and phase-detection focus technology - the latter being used when the cameras detect favorable lighting conditions. Assuming that the light level is high enough, then the J1 and V1 switch to a 73-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system that offers fast and responsive 'single-shot' AF and impressive continuous AF tracking performance.
