Canon's new lens mount and their unique lenses have the potential to really kick a## when a pro body comes out.

If the 50mm f1.2 R and the 28 - 70mm f2.0 are any indication, the R mount's lenses are gonna be stupidly huge and expensive they will only be afforded by an extreme minority.

Good w*nking material for Canon fanboys thought, even thought the extreme vast majority of them will never be able to afford them

And you're seriously underestimating the E mount here, Sony has a patent for a 28 70 f2.0 and the (now defunct) Meyer optik and Zhongyi have demonstrated that the E Mount are also capable of exotic ultra wide aperture lenses too.

And as much as Canon fanboys want you to believe, the average people (including professional photographers) do not buy into a system because of lenses, they buy into the system usually because they look at the body specs first and then affordability.

Some buy in because of support and the overall business case.

That may explain why Canon has half the total market and more than half of the professional market without the benefit of the best performing bodies.

Serious pros buy the best glass and that lasts a long time. Bodies are changed regularly, even annually, like we change our smartphones...

Well, a while ago most pros used Nikon but people switched to canon because bodies were better, despite superior Nikon glass. Things changed when Nikon switched to Sony sensors but by then it was mostly too late.

It's turning point now as decades ago.  If Canon still doesn't innovate and lag behind competitors it will be sidelined sooner or later when ML is getting better and better, more and more AI patten recognition built-in such as animal eye detection.  If sport and wildlife photogs can nail athletes or animals eyes so easily they will abandon DSLR and move to ML, the last two fields to be migrated.
