It's the Nex's and the Fuji's, not the DSLRs that are the main competition.

Anything at around the same price and similar sizes is competition. It doesn't go by category or technology.  I only mention it then in the context of a "bigger OMD."  If that's the direction they are going then I think it could be an issue, though the lenses are smaller.

It would be a step-up camera for current m43 users, and a possible draw for some "ready for mirrorless" users who are waiting for a more serious entry. If it's $1500 it will seem high compared to a dslr, but if it's at the top of the mirrorless heap performance wise, not so bad.

I understand that aspect but I really don't think different tech will matter. It's what the consumer feels they are getting at that price.  This is why I think small is important to keep as a key differentiator.
