Re: It's July 2019. Too close to the next release cycle to buy a Canon camera?

most likely canon will want new 1d before olympics. Rumours are it is already out for field tests... however i would suggest trying to pick up a decent used 1dx2 as great camera and no big deal to swap in when there is a new one....

5dsr does need updating and again I would be gobsmacked if not replaced by new version or by mirrorless by at very latest Q1 2020, Again second hand ones can be very cheap - even new ones are now cheap.

basically these cameras are not for money savers.... as you know you will require latest hardware/software to run them efficiently, all the best lenses etc etc...

overall it can be at least $10k-$20k investment and not done on the cheap.
