I agree, I would like to see a higher end M series camera and a few, not many, very good lenses that are compact. Don't need to be overly fast so size can be kept small.i can already hear the internet whimpering start for "8k has to be in every STILLS camera too" ...
It will be interesting to see what Canon does in terms of crop mirrorslappers. "90D" yes or no ... or total shift to mirrorfree EOS M ... looking forward to a new "flagship" EOS M [M5 successor], hope it is fully competitive with Fuji XT3 and upcoming next Sony A#### model. If so, 7D III can stay "on hold" for a long time.
An RF ILC Cinema EOS body would be great, but in order for it to add value to the marketplace, it would have to record 4K 60p 10-bit internally. And I just don't see Canon cannibalizing the rest of their cinema lineup with a camera that is 4K 60p sitting below the C200/300 due to their conservative nature. But, as usual, I hope I'm wrong.
There might not be a lot of design changes, but it seem possible to me that there may be some DSLR's in production for quite a while, or at least available new.
Even 4K is just bragging rights. I seriously doubt most people cannot see the difference. 8K is a way to dupe those with more money than brains to part with it. 99.9% of those shooting even 4K have no idea how to do a real quality video production and most 4K I have seen reminds me of the crappy home movies of the 60's. In other words BORING.I dont see peopel caring about 8k. Barely any 8k tvs, the difference in quality might small to the eyes, the requirements in storage and processing will greatly increase making it expensive to handle.
I'm going through so much phases regarding Canon... Love, hate, hope, disbelief, trust, confidence, disapointment, resignation...
It looks so close to grieving stages that I'm starting to feel I must turn the Canon page.
Exactly. 4K is seriously expensive to set up (memory cards, storage, powerful enough PC) and unless people are creating serious content (for example, anything broadcast quality for terrestrial TV, Netflix etc.) it’s totally wasted on vloggers with their YouTube accounts. Even if we all had 4K TV’s, HD is still more than impressive enough for the next camera guru YouTube channel. Still, as you mention, unless the videographer trully understands how to create quality video content (lighting, exposure, framing, content, sound, graphics & editing) 4K is a complete waste of time.Even 4K is just bragging rights.

i agree in terms of RF and timing. But don't think they'll go to f/6.3 ... it will be called f/5.6 (in reality f/5.99 or so).I think the long-rumored non-L supertele zoom (eg 200-600) will make an appearance on RF mount with f/6.3 at the far end, so something like an RF 200-600 f/4.5-6.3 IS - once they have a faster camera suitable for wildlife enthusiasts.
