Re: No wonder Sony did not bother...

I wouldn't say that. The approach is different. I think both companies are mainly thinking about how best to transition to mirrorless. In the meantime, for pro sports shooters, Canon is trying to tweak the 1D to address A9 strengths while Nikon seems to have gone full legacy (D)SLR in their approach. Nikon did improve their silent shooting option, but it still looks to be a compromise option and not a preferred shooting mode.

For their users this will be a worthwhile upgrade. I don't think they'll attract any new customers with it, though, but that was probably not an objective.
