Will we see a medium format Sony, Nikon or Canon?

Fujifilm jumped into medium format, do you think we would see a medium format Sony, Nikon or Canon?  

Just a random question.  I was reading someones comments about Fuji and it got me thinking.  

Canon 5D Mark II | Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM | Canon 35L | Sigma 85 1.4 | Helios 44M-6 58mm(M42) | Zeiss 50mm 1.4 (C/Y) | Canon 135L | (2) 430EX II

Doubt it, they are to busy working on the mirrorless side of things.  If anything, they will be making smaller cameras.

Medium format means new body and new lenses. Both Nikon and Canon just got into mirrorless. If you want to see how medium pans out, watch Fuji and their recent offering. That will tell you whether there's a market. (Hint: not so much for amateurs, IMNSHO. Serious enthusiasts, yes, but most of them are happy with their DSLRs in Auto mode.)

D850 is close to medium format.  Heck their next round of DSLR or Mirrorless cameras might have the specs to go head to head anyway with medium format.

They would have to be close to the prices of Fuji and
offer an alternative to Phase One… some challenge!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Why?

There is no reason why why they would go down that path.
