Sony already has. I don't see a lot of sales there also.

The Sony A7S isn't a high-end camera. It only costs $2500; that's in the lower-middle. A high end camera costs around $7000. But to do a mirror-less that bests all the current high-end mirror cameras, it's gonna take some effort. That effort will run the price up above the cost of a mirror camera. If it doesn't work better than the D4x and the 1Dx, why bother?

On paper, the mirror-less concept should be capable of better images and be easier for photographers to use. But so far, nobody has set out to actually produce that super camera. Of course, the first models will be terribly expensive, but if they are REALLY better, the pros can and will buy them. If the pros don't buy into this design, then it's never gonna happen the other way.
