Why on earth would anyone abandon mirrorless?

When the crunch properly comes, having a more efficient and cheaper way to build cameras will be a significant competitive advantage.

I don't think even Canikon are likely to abandon mirrorless. They'll play it quite for a while to get as much gain from their existing systems as they can, but I would put money down that they're keeping their R&D department ticking over with research into technologies required for mirrorless (eg: 70d).

To add, the only way I can see any of these companies abandoning mirrorless in the next few years (with the exception of Pentax, as Pentax is still predominantly a DSLR company and the Q could get lost in the compact camera slaughter if it's unlucky) is if they got out of cameras all together.
