I have shot Canon since 1968 and never had a problem with a camera or a lens. I own a 1DS III that I purchased used and a 5dsr that I purchased when it first came out. I use a number of "L" lenses, some like the 135 F2 from my film days. They all work fine. I now shoot landscapes primarily with a Fuji GDX 100S, but I continue to use the 5DSR for portraits. A 5DSR you purchase new today should last you a long time. Canon EF lenses will be around for the foreseeable future.

My purpose in writing the OP centered around the fact that Canon is discontinuing production of the 5DsR.

My backup 5DS R  is supposed to ship today.  So with two I should be good for a few years.  

But as I've revealed in a follow-up post, Canon tech support has stated that parts and service for the 5DsR should continue for at least 15 years, and quite likely for as much as 20.

That's good to hear.
