Re: I don't think there will be a 5DV

with the intense competition, shrinking camera market ... I don't think we'll see a 5D V, darn it.

All the more reason to release a product which will sell to people who otherwise would not buy anything. That is Business 101. When you discover a potential market, fill it.

There are thousands and thousands of photographers happy to spend up on new model SLRs, but unimpressed by the mirrorless stuff, especially the viewfinders, which suck.

I am just one of many: I'll happily buy a 5D V, and if they do one I'll buy a 7D III as well, but if all Canon can offer me is more and more mirrorless stuff, I'll spend the money elsewhere. Home improvements, musical instruments, travel (yes, we can travel here, we are Covid-free), maybe time to start thinking about upgrading my car ....

Canon can't just assume they will get my dollar. And if they don't make an appealing product, they won't get it.
