The RP would seem to be Canon's version of the Gillette/Schick approach, not the R5. I don't think Canon will be giving R5's away, not with the specs that camera is going to have. We can spend endless hours wrangling over the price Canon sets for the R5, and will doubtless do so. Canon may well price the R5 aggressively, but it is not going to be the camera for everyone who wants to get into the RF mount.All Canon has to do here is to set a very low MAP price which will still allow the distributors and the dealers to make some money, but they can make more off lens sales.
If Canon really want to take back the #1 position in mirrorless ILC, they should go the Gillette/Schick route.
