In 1.5 years it's likely they have their native lens lineup complete incl. tele lenses. What Canon advantage is left by then?
And how many times are you gong to spout this garbage about it being Canon's responsibility to produce a speedbooster so you can fit third party lenses onto their cameras?
If this is your idea of good marketing strategy you are a conceptual retard whose opinions are merely a wishlist of what you want. If Canon followed your suggestions they would go bust.
Unfortunately for you I never demanded or expected that Canon will introduce a Speedbooster, as of course it's technically impossible. But it's a 100% true and clear disadvantage for Canon and a fact that is worth mentioning once every 4 month. Like temporary disadvantages of Sony which are mentioned here 10 times a day by others.
Speed booster is possible only if the lens' power of coverage is greater than the camera's sensor, so the Sony a9 (or whichever Sony FF camera) would have no advantage, in this respect, over a Canon full frame mirrorless.
As for adapters, if the flange distance & diameter allow it, and demand exists for it, some third party manufacturer(s) would make it.
