I just read the announcement specs for the upcoming Canon R5. It'll have IBIS and dual slots resolving the two major shortcomings of the Canon R. Hopefully with stronger onboard processors it will also reach AF parity with Sony's tracking and Eye-AF.

What if Nikon announce a pro spec ML specification around July?

What if ML helps demonstrate screwdriver AF lenses, all but a couple optically designed last century, are relatively weak wide open compared to recent F mount AF-s lenses, many of which in turn are not optically as good as the expanding Z lens range?

wide open, very well may be. So shoot an f/1.4 lens at f/2, or an f/2 lens at f/2.5. Maybe even an f/2.8 lens at f/3.5 or f/4. Usually not such a big deal for most practical purposes. Either that or spend a fortune. Where it is not about bragging rights, it is all about cost/benefit.

If you want an ML camera with shorter lens to sensor distance and wider throat launched in 2020 do you also want to use lenses designed 30 years ago - as many screwdriver AF lenses were.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
