You’ll be waiting a long time. Canon wants users to be to R models, in part to buy RF lenses. At best a 5D5 might be 2 years away if not 3.

Canon may want this but several groups of photographers don't want the EVF and don't want to work with adapters to use their glass.

I'm sure there were groups of photographers saying the same thing when AF lenses and the EF mount first came into being.

Of course, but these were improvements and by the way you can disable AF.

Admittedly, the new mount is an improvement too but the EVF is no match for the OVF when it comes to shooting sports, wildlife and all sorts of action. And that's the problem.

If they build a mirrorless with an optional OVF I'll buy it. The mirror is a blur introducing, noise making, weight adding nuisance anyway.
