Yes it will. Check out the sensor ratings, sure, Canon's sensor is a little bit wider and a tiny little bit higher, but it's outdated technology takes all the advantage back.

Not interested in comparing sensor wangs. If canon's older tech results in lower image quality, that doesn't lead to the conclusion that smaller cameras in general are just as good. It would only show that a more recent smaller camera can be better than an outdated larger camera. At some point, that outdated sensor will be updated. The major brands tend to fall behind for a while, then take a big step forward. If you want to compare the latest mirrorless, it's only fair to compare it to a DSLR of similar vintage. Are nikon sensors actually up to date, or are they just somewhat less dated than canons sensors, with the mirrorless cameras having a substantial advantage in terms of updated technology? If the sensor in the mirrorless is that much better, the DSLR makers will use the same technology, when it makes business sense to upgrade their product lines. More likely, they have an advance of their own to utilize.
