We expect an announcement in late January or early February ahead of the CP+ tradeshow.
We have been told to expect the availability of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to come in early April.

Canon has lost this decade to Sony. Let's hope Canon's 2020 will start with some new strategy.
I think one flagship camera is not enough for today's market.
Canon puts all the efforts to cheap cameras, but that market shrinks like something in a cold water. Canon could look at smartphones market. Apple, Google and other release several flagship models at once and do it every year.
I believe, Canon needs at least three current flagship models for different kind of consumers. Alas, Canon only indulges news agencies and older Japanese tourists who are looking for cheap crappy cameras. What about photogs of wildlife, fashion, portraits and all other kinds who prefer more megapixels in a form of a flagship? Canon has completely forgot about us.

Going forward, I wouldn't buy anything EF mount. When they bring the Pro body RF mount out, I expect they will announce RF Supertelephoto lenses to pair with it. DO tech? Maybe, maybe not.

Oh great, that means I can get some real EF bargains!

Being slightly more serious, some EF designs benefit from being used on R mount, specifically the EF 8-15, the EF15, EF14, EF11-24, and all the TS-E lenses but especially the 17. As a large portion of my paid work is done with lenses in this group I'm very happy that an investment in a new mount body actually dramatically increases my functionality and isn't forcing me to buy new lenses as well.

Personally I can see me getting a high resolution R but only using it in specific instances, I'd use my EF mount cameras for 95% of what I do, so for me EF is still very relevant and I can see me getting more EF lenses moving forwards, for the other 5% of the time I will use adapters.For my use I see zero point in buying dedicated RF lenses as I won't have the backwards compatibility and that will severely limit their functionality for my uses.

Canon is doomed. Heard that before.

I wish it was that simple for me. I expect to be picking up a C series in the next couple of years but they probably won't take RF glass for another 5 years or more. If ever. But I need some more glass for my R now.

Canon produces good equipment. But good will not carry them long in a severely shrinking camera market. DSLR shooters will soon be making the decision to move to mirrorless platforms. With the release of new RF lenses, Canon's legacy glass will no longer hold the Canon customer base. Canon must now demonstrate that it is the future of photography and not the past.

Yes, by all means, dump that outdated EF mount stuff, especially any supertelephotos you may have. I hope lots of people follow your advice and flood the market.

You got that right brother. Imagine Canon's flagship at 20MP's all the double talk in the world can't justify such an insulting proposition.

I'm dreaming of a RF 24mm T&S f2.8 this lens should be so much better designed for the rf mount. maybe 2021?

Thanks, without your comments this community wouldn't be so fantastic.

Do you want to know a secret?
I know you want.

Canon is working on foveon sensors. They will be ready for the second ML sensor generation. Canon eos RIV or RV will have it. The new sensor generation from the 90d ecc. is at the moment good enough to compete against sony sensors. And then bam.

What about your rumor of the MF Canon? Still in the works?

Let's just say that you need to wait until the new year just a tad few days after CES 2020 when something BIG is coming ... IT IS NOT OUR 50.3 megapixel MF camera which is coming later...but rather a "VERY VERY INTERESTING RUMOUR" which I haven't yet confirmed yet with certain Asian "engineering sources" but when I saw the example in-the-wild-imagery from my usual European sources, I was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED that Canon is even contemplating "this" !!!!

It's a Doozy from Canon!

How do these, particularly the TSE's, benefit from R mounting?
Because you can easily use PL and ND filters with the adapter, it is very awkward or expensive to use filters with most of my listed lenses, the TS-E 24-50-90-135 can use regular filters but using an adapter means one fits them all and you will never get filter vignetting however much you tilt and shift.
