I have another question

It is wise to buy first generation of full frame mirroless (pro) cameras?

I doubt it'll make a difference. Canon in reality wouldn't be first generation full frame mirrorless, since most of their full frame cameras now sans EVF act as full mirrorless cameras in liveview mode, with over 20 million on sensor AF points to boot.

and in reality there's not much difference to building an APS-C mirrorless and a full frame mirrorless, the only difference is the size and characteristics of the sensor.

I agree.  My guess would be that Canon will announce a FF mirrorless by the end of this year - and will run that mirrorless alongside its FF DSLRs.  Same mount but different body shape obviously.  Let the customers decide which they want.

Nikon won't issue one this year or in 2018.
