APS-Z is a huge gamble that may or may not pay off.

My point is I believe it would payoff if they use DX mirrorless to concentrate on small.

Many categories of users want smaller equipment and APS-C still offers the potential for high IQ.

I don't know that APS-Z could get that much smaller. They made the mount very big for FF lenses.

I suggested years ago that Canikon keep their existing SLR mounts, but ditch the mirrors and push optical elements deep into the new space. They'd have to call it a different mount to keep consumers from destroying the mirrors on their DSLRs but they'd have that compatibility. Ordinarily F mount's small throat diameter would be an issue but I think it would be fine for APS-C.
