That actually ...

A future lineup that goes RP Mk II > R6 > R mk II > R5 > R1 just seems a too illogical naming convention for Canon to tie themselves in to.

That actually makes a lot of sense. The RP is something new that never existed in the FF DSLR world. The R6 is the mirrorless successor to the 6D series. The R is actually the successor to the 5DIV series. The R5 is the 5Ds successor. The R1 is 1Dx series successor when it appears.

Now they probably screwed up a bit with naming the first camera just 'R'. Will be interesting to see what nomenclature they give to what is the mirrorless successor of the 5DIV camera line in the future.
