Re: Any news of an X-T5 ?

As most others said: 2022, Q1-2, maybe even Q3.

It will probably get:

- higher rez EVF
- faster AF, specially eye AF, up to Sony's standard'
- new sensor, possibly global shutter one or at least with very fast readout

Conventional sensor tech alone will only bring small incremental improvements generation after generation.

However, if camera makers could only bring a third of Apple's computational photography to system cameras, that could bring a huge progress.

An X-T-something with basically iPhone processing behind would blow away FF or probably even MF.

However, once you study how far Apple has come with computing with their new M1 processors in terms of computational intelligence, it is hard to believe that any camera makera will even get close. They just don't have the R&D power or even the money needed to install it.

For those who doubt: maybe you want to study - in LR - the new Apple ProRaw files of a night shot or deep fusion file that took 2-3s to even get recorded, you will be blown away. The amount of dynamic range is unbelievable, seen it is a phone. Nothing handheld with a system camera will come close.
