I was referring to if Canon abandoned the EF system

I know. I just think you're being unrealistic to expect a 3rd party company to create something that's a better EF mount DSLR than the 5DIV.

It would be possible if say Canon drops the EF system say in a month and another company starts work to simply improve on the 5D line a year from now. They would not even nees to make it super advance. It could even only have 1080p video but people would buy for the photography side if they are part of the EF system.

What makes you think your hypothetical DSLR white knight can deliver a 5D4 successor in one year when Pentax, which has actually been building DSLRs for heaven knows how long, can’t replicate a 5D4’s performance on full frame? I mean, K-1 does have nice features missing from 5D4 like IBIS, but at 4.4fps, it is clearly much less of an all-purpose camera than the 5D4, and it is not as if Pentax is applying a cripple hammer to it to make room for a higher-end action camera.
