Highly doubtful. FF will alway be a niche

Various site have reported that sensor cost go up exponentially with size.

Small size sensors are getting better and are hitting the point of "good enough" (ala, mp3s worse than CDs, etc.)

FF mirrorless is like SACD, Blu-ray, 3D TV and 4K TVs. CE companies are always looking for ways to raise prices and increase revenue, but then companies like Apple, Netflix, Amazon, etc. come along and kick their butts selling mp3 players, smartphones and downloadable content that have less quality, but are much cheaper.  Notice how Sony and Panasonic are losing billions and are out of touch?

The Sony FF mirrorless camera is rumored to be up to $4000. You can get a PM2 for $199, and even more people will use their iPhone instead.
