What do you mean by "knocked out"?

My wishes have finally came true. However, Canon and Nikon bet on the wrong horses again: They are investing on the optical photography instead of the software photography. This is not wise because:

1) With tiny phone camera sensors we can get a long depth of field and very sharp photos,

In good light and with static subjects, this is true.

but also beautiful bokeh with the software photography even in dark conditions.

That is not correct.

2) With full-frame sensor and wide aperature lens you can get beautiful bokeh, but with software photography it is impossible to convert the unsharp background to sharp one.

I'm not sure you typed that correctly. With a FF camera, you can get a deep DoF by using a smaller aperture. Or, a good looking shallow DoF by using a wider aperture. Ta-da!

3) Full-frame sensors makes the mirrorless cameras large and heavy.

Already, many are complaining they are too small!
