Including all the firmware updates in the mark 1 , what can the mark2 give us that was missing in the first one?
Focus stacking which they put in the RP but not the R. Hopefully the new sensors will handle depth of field issues. Now that Canon has said no new EF glass, they can create some non "L" glass and 3rd parties will start making RF lenses.

Depth of field issues?
When has Canon said, " No more EF glass"?

Probably. Unfortunately, this is one of the silly things about news today, the internet and forums. Another website took the quote from the Canon executive, blew it way out of proportion and added a deceptive headline. People are sharing that story without even reading what the Canon executive said, which is clearly NOT what the headline claims.

Says nothing about "depth of field issues" (whatever that is) or abandoning EF. In fact it says, "we plan to continue this, launching more RF lenses while still fully supporting the EF lens system. "

At the time I replied to CFB, I hadn't seen the other website you mentioned. You are right that they frequently blow things out of proportion. As soon as I saw what you wrote, I knew who it was.
Thanks for pointing it out.
I'm not adding a link because they don't deserve the clicks.

Agree completely with you. I talked with a Canon executive in November 2019 at French Photo fair and he confirmed they will focus on RF lenses because they need to have sufficient lenses to offer for R bodies. However, he made it clear EF lenses line is continuying as their professional sport photographers are going to continue to buy EF Bodies like the 1DX series. He told me, but honestly I do not understand why, that an mirror body is the only serious option to have the highest burst rate...(?). I would have thought a mirrorless body would offer better burst rate, but apparently I am wrong.

If Canon were smart they would offer an EOS R trade in program for the mk2 get a good discount and promote sales from those that only brought a new camera 12 months ago and gives them plenty of materials to recycle back in to production lines to save manufacturing costs as most of the parts will be the same.

I hope that is tongue in cheek. Making new cameras with used trade-in parts would be a marketing disaster and greatly increase production costs in essentially any plausible scenario.

The R models perform just as well as promised, so no need for a profit-killing trade-in.
