I totally get what you are saying but this is all under the assumption that Canon continues making their lenses, just not new ones and that they stop making new bodies. And even though you are right that there are plenty of other companies with their own lenses, it is just the idea that all those Canon users of EF are left on the table. Surely a lost profit. Isnt that why this thread was started?

Canon supports the EF lens on the RF mount. The adapter isn't even that expensive.

The people who *might* be left on the table are the people with EF lenses that need a DSLR. I'm sure that's a reasonably sized market, but experience would suggest it is too small a market to justify making a DSLR from pretty much scratch.

Canon does not have to or will not make 5D V from scratch. It does not make sense.

They will use parts from R5, and 1D iii and put together a very nice 5DV with minimum R&D.
