Came close this morning to jumping on the 5R. Spent about an hour calculating sale price for my Mark III and a few lenses. Fortunately common sense eventually prevailed. I tried the RP and although a nice camera I just could not get used to the “small” form factor. I really like size and feel of a dslr. So patiently going to wait till 4th quarter and hope some announcement from Canon for a Mark V. Happy shooting everyone.

This isn’t definitive but as I’ve been observing in the camera industry’s contraction they are focusing on the most profitable sectors.

On the flip side, it may preserve what little value is left in this highly capable dslr which still holds its own in 2020.

Then why not take the sensor of the 5R, use parts of the AF of the 1DXIII, put it in the 5DIV body that has proven itself and you have a 5DV at very low costs.

You have a group of buyers waiting for a 5DV, easy as that.

I believe Canon is going to do just that. But at this moment they don't want 5D users to wait for next DSLR. They want them to buy R5 and those rumours are part of that,
