No mention of IBIS, Dual Digic, Dual SD, or 4K60 per the previous rumor. Still a significant upgrade from my 70D.

Yea, that caught my eye too. No idea!
The M6 II has the same note in it's video. That doesn't sound like it's full sensor readout downscaled "4K".

The M6 II doesn't have a note about a FOV crop for 120fps FHD. The RAW Burst shooting feature of the M6 II seems to be missing from the 90D also.

Looks like a pretty nice package overall. Interesting...

For me the big remaining question is sensor architecture and DR. Since they're not touting new and improved sensor technology on these splash videos my guess is that it's the old sensor tech with a MP bump. Same DR, more or less, is the way it would seem... We'll see....

These are very nice evolutionary upgrades, but I had hoped for kaikaku, not mere kaizen.

Doesn't seem like a significant upgrade from my 80D. 4k60 no crop on APSC would finally out it in competition with the A6500 and GH9 not sure why they leave things like 4k60 and ibis out on a camera that's so far behind in tech today.

This is how all new Canon cameras seem to start out these days. They look quite promising at first glance, but unfortunately the more you find out about the specific details the more your interest wanes. The G7X III is a perfect case in point.

A snip from the 90D video. Does the statement "During viewfinder shooting (AF fixed/tracking)" mean that when looking through the optical viewfinder and shooting at the high rate of 10 fps the AF is fixed; as in you have no AF available when shooting stills at 10fps? Please tell me I am reading this incorrectly.

I'd like to think that means AF fixed or tracking mode both gets 10 fps when using the viewfinder, which is not a new tech by any means.

You can't do full sensor readout of a 32mp sensor and generate 4k frames without image processing. If they were grabbing 4k frames directly it would have to be from a crop. The note may therefore mean the opposite of what you imagine.

I thought that too - 10FPS fixed and "normal" servo tracking, but not eye AF.

You should read it as however is more restrictive / less useful to an end user.

And yet when people actually get to use Canon bodies, not just argue about spec sheets on the internet, they are almost universally considered great cameras and better than the sum of their parts.

So why is the note not mentioned for FHD? The same thing you describe would be the case for FHD video, but there is no * in the video for those with that explanation.
