Differences between 1dx3 and R5. Pure speculations!

Perhaps we can predict what will be the differences/similarities between the 1dx3 and R5.
I guess:
1. 1dx3 will be much better build quality.
2. 1dx3 will be much better on battery life.
3. 1dx3 will have tripple the buffer.
4. 1dx3 will have shorter focus time (marginally so)
5. 4k video will be identical on both cameras.
6. 1dx3 will be a half stop better at high ISO.
7. The 'response time' will be better in 1dx3. (Much better)

What else?

R5

1. Will have "Flippy" screen
2. 40+MP sensor
3. A much higher number of focusing points with around 85-90% sensor/viewfinder coverage.
4. EVF
5. much lower price - I'll guess between $3.600-$3.900USD. If I had to pin-point 1 target: $3.799USD Body only. $4.799USD w/RF 24-105 f4.0L IS (I should add: Body only would include the basic EF - RF adapter.)


1DX Mk III

8. Back-button auto-focus has touch-sensor-pad to move auto-focus points (R5 will not have this but will have a Joystick.)

1, goes without saying; 2, has to be because 1dx3 is a DSLR with a much larger battery; 3, goes without saying; 6, DR has already been measured and is the same as the EOS R at high iso, apart from a couple of points where the R is better

8. 1DX 3 will need micro AF adjustment, R5 won’t.
9. 1DX 3 won’t show you the photo you just took in the viewfinder, the R5 will.
10.1DX 3 won’t really give you much cropping capabilities, the R5 will.
11.1DX 3 will not be a half stop better than the R5 if you normalize the photos (compare apples to apples).
