The last month - total industry shakeup?

Just looking back, has the last month since the release of the Nikon Z possibly seen the biggest single shakup in the camera industry? I mean...c'mon. Since August 23rd, the industry has had the following 'major' releases or announcements:

  • New FF mirrorless system and mount for Nikon
  • New FF mirrorless system and mount for Canon
  • New FF mirrorless system coming in 2019 from Panasonic

And I'm not even counting the slew of 'next version of XX' products to come out:

  • new MF from Fuji, 100MP for $10K in development
  • XT-3 that is pretty awesome
  • New Leica MF body
  • 150mp Phase One backs
  • Umpteen lenses from all the players

New lens mounts and systems don't happen very often, like every 60 years for some companies Is this the start of a major shakeup in the camera industry? Is the next major era of digital (the mirrorless invasion) about to go into high gear?

Just seems more major news has happened in the last 30ish days than I can remember for a long time. The landscape of upcoming products is astonishing compared to what was known on August 22nd.
