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, Canon want to sell mirrorless cameras and make money in a shrinking market, the only way to continue to be the number one (DSLR and mirorless combined) is to be the number one even with FF mirrorless and this camera is going to play this tough game, the 1DXIII is the best DSLR ever made (if you don't care about extremely high resolution) why the R5 shouldn't aim to be the best mirrorless ever made? (until the R5s and the real flagship R1 comes out)

We already know from the rumor mill that proved to be right about the R5, the 24-105 , the 100-500 and the extendes (and the 850D) that also an R6 is coming soon with a "lame" 20MP, but also very fast at 12fps and 20fps and the price will be very interesting, just as it's the 6DII (and the future 6DIII).

"We already know"? It's a rumour mill, we don't "know" those things at all.

All we know is:

  • new sensor and processor
  • 8K video (whoopee)
  • IBIS (actual whoopee)
  • "up to" 20 fps with silent shutter (usually a bogus number that doesn't apply to CAF)

so the 1DX Mark II and M6 mark II and the 90D all have bogus numbers?

  • "up to" 12 fps with mechanical shutter (usually a bogus number that doesn't apply to CAF)

see above. and btw, ALL manufacturers state their FPS as "up to"
