the point is that someone should teach them how to do more esthetically appealing  slides I guess.

I suspect at least part of the point is that those of you wanting two high end R models are likely to be disappointed.

This is a sales presentation, front line guys to the focus of the various products, not really an internal document about the future that no one doesnt already know.

Re: Canon's own presentation of Corporate strategy

this chart doesn't say anything about future roadmap of DSLR/RP cameras, we all already know that

Points: I don't have any points to make.

Just sharing data directly from Canon including  a link to whole presentations, even if it is just what they want us to know/believe.

It's interesting how people at Canon look upon the market, dividing it into three categories and where they place their models, knowing for instance that many professional photographers use the "advanced amateur camera" 5DIV.

How's so? This slide says nothing really. Except perhaps what they currently have. 
I say this because it is unlikely that they will never replace the 7DII with something better in terms of better DR sensor. So this is no road map.

Re: Canon's own presentation of Corporate strategy

They are acknowledging the lack of a flagship R and hinting one is coming. They've said this before though, nothing new.

No it isn't. This is a document from a Corporate Strategy Conference.

But you are right, in that this document has nothing to do with what specific products will be available in the future. This is a publicly available document, so they are not about to give away any secrets.

To me, the point of the slide is official confirmation that they are concentrating their managerial resources on mirrorless. DSLR development is going to get short shrift.

Their medium term plan is to expand their imaging division in areas like automotive and industrial. They already have a division that sells industrial camera sensors.

Yeah, this is how I interpreted that part, too. But it makes sense. At some point we'll look back and see that mirrorless to DSLR will be what DSLR was to film, like it or not (and yes I realize that's not some major revelation, obviously), so of course they are going to prioritize accordingly.

i disagree, SLR to DSLR was a leap--the format completely changed, nothing in common between the 2. however, both DSLR and ML cameras have a lot in common, both are digital format except for some mechanical and size differences, IMO.

The 5d series should obviously belong to the professional group of cameras. It's expensive, large, rugged, has good weather sealing and so on. As you say it's widely used by professionals. Nikon UK lists not only the D5 and the D800 series as pro but also the D750, D500 and the Df.

depends on what your definition of professional is! a guy that goes on an assignment to amazon jungle, deserts of north africa, or world sporting event, is not going to take a 5D4 along with him/her but for a wedding or corporate party photography, a 5D4 will be enough for the job! so it is hard to generalize strict usage of 1D or 5D type by professionals.
