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.

There’s no performance hit with the Canon adapter

Fair enough but every adapter weakens the system. I never use a converter for the same reason, simply don't like it, I want my lens to be glued to the body.

Admittedly, that's a minor issue compared to the EVF

If you want to your lens "glued to the body" then ILC are not for you.  And a TC can yield up great results when used under the appropriate conditions and circumstances.  Given that one doesn't carry a telephoto rig by the body to avoid pressure on the mount, the "weakened" system is not a significant matter.

As for the EVF, let us not be closed-minded.
