Thanks for the work done.

But honestly, in my opinion it's not very relevant Information.

People reading this site are somehow gearheads (at least i am) and we know quite well, which cameras are due for a replacement next.

If I were to guess, this summary sheet is probably more aimed at Google search results and very casual readers of CR.  As you point out, the regular readers can probably figure all that out by themselves.  Think of it as the opposite of click-bait: a way to bring in new visitors with useful information.

...

What about a replacement for the 135mm f/2? It's getting long in the tooth!

This is a great resource, especially for new readers and first-time visitors.  The thing that drove me to this site years ago was that I was looking for rumors of when a new Rebel t2i would come out and whether I should wait or get the t1i that was on the market.  It was a tough thing to get a handle on just from reading rumors and posts.  This boils it down to a much more concrete recommendation based on actual data, and including the links to the rumors will help you get down into the discussion much faster. 

And for established readers, it gives us just one more thing to argue about.  So, seems like a win-win.
Canon 6d, t1i, 24-70/4L, 20/2.8, 28/1.8, 40/2.8, 50/1.8II, 100/2.8 macro, 70-300/4-5.6, g1x, 430exII, 90ex
Elan 7N with 28-105/3.5-4.5II, Rebel G with 35-70/3.5-4.5, A-1 with 28/2.8, 50/1.8, and 135/3.5

Nice! Lent from MacRumors, huh?  :)

Nope, stolen! I did talk to Arnold a while back to make sure it was ok. :)

Nice work, CR Guy.  I dig it.

As many here will vouch, I do love some 'past is prologue' schedule predictions.  Canon does love a routine, after all.

That said, Canon is a behemoth and the industry has changed dramatically with the introduction of mirrorless and rise of cell phone photography.  Curious to see how their habits change in the years ahead.

Particular areas of interest of mine are when Canon breaks its routines:

  • Is the Nikon D500 + $1400 200-500 f/5.6 VR flipping any Canon business to the point that the 7D3 gets accelerated?  Was the 5-ish year product lifecycle for the 7D1 just a product of the fact that Nikon wasn't offering a new model in that space, or was that Canon's plan all along?

  • Does Canon like or dislike the 'feature envy' between the 5D# line and the 5DS line?  Might it accelerate a 5DS2 to have it receive largely the same timing, core tech and feature set as the 5D4?  In other words, could you ever imagine the 1DX# --> 5D# --> 6D# release cadence becoming the 1DX# --> 5D# and 5DS# --> 6D# someday?

Nice piece of work lads!
All theories are wrong, but some are useful, eh?

nicely done. I just wish the guide had some kind of rating guide as well... For example, DPR rating, Reviews from well known sources, links to sample photos and who the camera is good for or bad for.
Just my 2 cents...

Having DPR scores would destroy its credibility for most of the regular readers as they are convinced DPR is biased against Canon, and adding DxO would sink it without trace.

If you're going to include links, then do it for rumors of upcomming releases.. after all that's what CR is all about.  Linking to the CR gear reviews is fine, but all links should be to CR areas as then it sends traffic this way.
