Over the last week or so, our inbox has become really quiet as far as EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II announcements go. It’s surprising that this close to the August 28, 2019 announcement for each camera that we aren’t hearing new things almost daily.
Interestingly, we have been told by a couple of Canon dealers around the globe that Canon is setting up major training and showcasing of new products in early September, one of the retailers told us that this training seems to be above and beyond what Canon usually does for a new consumer EOS DSLR and EOS M cameras. This tells us that either these new products are a big departure from their previous iterations, or there could be another product being announced that hasn’t leaked at all. Canon has become really good at stopping leaks.
We have heard that an EOS M5 Mark II is coming, and was originally going to be announced alongside the EOS M6 Mark II, but has been delayed. There has been no word on when we can expect a new flagship EOS M...

Odd as it may seem, by keeping a tight lid on the information circulating about new gear, Canon merely increases the anticipation potential buyers have for what they will offer in the near future!

A quick search did not return links to press releases that announced the existence new fabrication plant.....

I hope it's decent with something(s) new...I'm no longer anxious...
It was believed by many that the R line was a knee-jerk response to the threat Sony posed to Canon's camera businesses. But subsequent reports indicated that Canon had begun working on what became the R line years before it launched. If Canon has quietly gestated a platform shift, from mirrored to mirrorless cameras, using newer, more complex CMOS sensors, there may come a day when a product flood shows itself.

Time will tell.

If the video is genuine and it certainly looks like it is, this will be quite a camera. More 7D than 80D. In my opinion, full coverage of viewfinder is more important than the number of focus points. All cross-type and probably all f8 focusing.

As far as the "training and showcasing" goes, I would not be surprised if that will be focused as much on the R as on the 90D and M series. From my own experience, the R is the type of camera that can really benefit from hands-on and one-on-one sales demonstrations.

I don't think they're all f/8 based on this frame or else it shouldn't matter what lens is attached, I think?

While we're at it, it looks like they leaked the M6II as well:
Looks Solid to me:
14fps
4k
32.5MP
That Raw burst looks like it starts shooting and keeps going until the buffer is full then starts erasing the earlier images until you trigger it to stop. I.e. so if you're waiting for the action to start you can start shooting way before without risk of filing the buffer and then once the action stops you let off the shutter to keep the last x images remaining in the buffer. That is a killer feature, and I likely butchered the explanation (or misinterpreted the video).
