Even when (not if) Nikon and Canon get serious about mirrorless, it will be quite some time before they can match what MFT offers today, and by then MFT will have advanced further.

There are rumours suggesting Nikon will use an F-mount which would instantly give access to a massive selection of native  lenses. The size advantge in FF mirrorless is mainly down to the body,  beyond a couple of mainly UWA lens examples , the lenses do not vary much in size you simply cannot beat physics. Assuming Nikon can get the best AF performance etc .

Same story with Canon given the huge selection of lenses already available both native and from Tamron, Sigma , et al using an EF mount on a future FF mirrorless system would make good business sense.Now whether Nikon or Canon act logically is a different matter
