I'm pretty sure we'd all like to know why they can't make a cutting edge sensor to match Sony/Nikon. That question doesn't get asked though. Or maybe asking how many more years do Canon users have to put up with a sensor that can't match the main competitors. The problem remains that many parents now, instead of buying a DSLR, just use their phone. So the Canon RP will help with mirrorless market share and profit, but possibly at the behest of rebel/E-M cameras that users would have otherwise bought. It will still sell well, but it might not sell as well as everyone thinks.
