I don't think either company yet has a sensor that can compete with the A9/A9II. I do think they (and even Sony) could achieve very competitive performance with their adapters and adapted lenses, but with Nikon and Canon's current level of sensor-based AF, they could not deliver a mirrorless flagship that would even be close in sports shooting performance to their current DLSRs.

Maybe Nikon can buy the A9 sensor. I'm sure Canon is working diligently to achieve something similar to what the stacked sensor can provide. Sounds like they're getting close with the 1Dx3 sensor.

I would bet that 2024 Olympics will be all-mirrorless, though.

Agreed Canon and Nikon don't have ML technology can compete to A9/A9 II yet.   Their owners still have to keep two systems/formats - one DSLR for the best performance in sport/action/wildlife and another ML for everything else.   Glad there is only one system and one format in Sony E-mount for all purposes.
