you can argue all you want. The vast majority of stills images captured is done so with lenses between 24 and about 100mm [FF FOV equivalent]. Crops in post are a different story. Should not be mixed up.

You can repeat yourself as often as you want, but that doesn't make you correct.  It does however, make you annoying.
It doesn't really matter. The point I was trying to make was that high quality lenses that were designed for full frame cameras tend to be large. My favourite lens is the Canon 35mm F1.4L ii. Its focal length is well below 100mm and yet at 760g it is more than 200g heavier than a Sony A7ii (body only).

mirrorless ... noise-less, vibration-less cameras

Apparently you've never shot the original A7r :)

the totally inadequate shutter on A7 first series was pne of the main reasons i did notcswitch back then but biught another Canon mirrorslapper (5D3) ... definitely my last one however. depending on eventual canon FF Milc and Sony A7/R III (dont need A9 machine gun, 5-6 fps is enough for my shooting) ... and possible Nikon FF Milc ... will decide my next system. :-)

Agreed, look at Sony's G-Master series.  The only thing likely to change that in the future is the implementation of curved sensors.
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses

+1.  No room for your fingers, in many cases physically longer than their EF counterparts, focus-by-wire [throw up in mouth face] and overpriced to boot.   Pass.

What I want to see is Canon be a little more innovative. The 6DII is really a disappointment in quite a few ways. Not saying it's a bad camera - it's good. But it should've been better.

Anyway, a camera like the 80D with 4k video (C-Log, not that MJPEG format), 1080 120fps, peaking, zebras, and a little bit better ISO performance would be an awesome all-rounder.
Really wish Canon would put out something like that...

For the second time in the last couple of months, we’re being told that a new DSLR series will be announced some time in 2018.
Neither source could name the series, only that it appeared as a “new DSLR series” in a presentation.
If we’re thinking out loud, I think these would be the obvious candidates.
EOS Cinema DSLR - A cinema DSLR camera to replace the discontinued EOS-1D C. This has been talked about numerous times over the years.
EOS-1D Xs - A high megapixel pro series body. Since the amalgamation of the 1D line back in 2009, we’ve always wondered if we’d get a camera like this to truly replace the EOS-1Ds Mark III.
EOS APS-C Cinema DSLR - A cheaper 4K cinema alternative that would “protect” the Cinema EOS lineup of cameras.
Hopefully this will bring a bit more information to the surface. For the moment, this is a [CR1] rumor, so please treat it as such.

...and maybe a Full Frame Mirrorless.
 
Some think that the EOS numbering has recently become stable ad predictable even for the M series.
 
No complete overlap between DSLRs and Mirrorless, but it could sound like:
100D/200D in Europe (SL1/2 in other Countries) and EOS M100: basic and small models
6D and M6: enthusiast models
5D and M5: more advanced models
Therefore, I expect to see a M1 (full frame mirrorless) as ambitious as a 1D(x).
We'll see.

Except that a M6 does not equal a 6D. An M5 does not equal a 5D.
5D Mark III, Canon EF 24-70 F/2.8L II, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 35 f/1.4L II, 135 f/2L, Streaklight 360ws, Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO, 26x m42 screw mount lenses adapted to my DSLR. Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro
