The EOS R5 is the mirrorless version of 5D mkV (it's coming I guess), Canon did gave us a reasonable hint with its name, it's the most detailed part of the development announcement

So the price point will be almost the same, so don't be fooled by the astonishing 8k , the 12fps and 20fps with a 45mp sensor with IBIS, Canon has a new fab that allows them to make new sensors and the new Digic processor that are much more advanced than the ones we had on our previous generations cameras

Just to niggle.

1. Canon wouldn't have needed a new fab. they have two already. they simply would have updated a line - if it was necessary. They updated their fab already for the 1DX Mark II, it would be unusual for them to turn around and update it once again. it could also be that they extended the APS-C lines to support full frame and thus allowed for quad metal 180nm full frame sensors.

2. Canon doesn't make DIGIC. They design it and farm it out. They most certainly don't have the fab to do that and never will (IMO). That's a very costly fabrication plant.
