While the Canon cameras that are expected to come out in the next month or so are very likely going to be DSLRs, it's possible that any breakthrough sensor technology found in them might also carry forward to the M series. It's going to take a HUGE jump for Canon to migrate that series from where it is to where Fuji is now with the X-T1 (let alone where it might be with the X-T2, or whatever they call its successor).

Canon could make an enormous jump over the M right now, with the technology they have, if they wanted. That is one seriously crippled camera system.

I agree Carol and believe the industry exec DPR interviewed who said Canon and Nikon have been slow to the mirror-less table only in the interest of protecting their dwindling DSLR sales.  Once both companies jump on the wagon they'll lend credence to the mirror-less concept which will stoke interest and sales. From there it will most likely be all downhill for DSLR's except for pro's and some enthusiasts. Systems like Fuji's and in particular the XT1 are very close to the capabilities of DSLR's and Fuji is a tiny player so imagine what Canon or Nikon could do in this market if they were serious.
