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.

It appears working pros don't care.  They have the tools that get the job done...and regardless of sensor, the a9 is just not of interest to them.  I am curious to see what the next pro iteration looks like from Canon and Nikon.  For now, I'll stick with my F5 😜...but I may add a D5 for fun.
