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.

The only way that is even remotely possible is if Canon was willing to sell/spin-off the whole dSLR division AND sell sensors and DIGICs to the new company.

The FAB needed to make sensors is way more than $1B in capitalization expenses. Canon has had time to amortize its FABs. Without FABs one does not have sensors or DIGIC chips.
