Clearly "it depends."

Two answers, actually. I've now invested in and jumped into mirrorless with both feet (R5 + RP). Still adapting some wonderful EF lenses. The reality is that I am not going to spend more dollars on another DSLR unless there is some major limitation with the R5 that I discover (and it would have to be very major). Every camera has some flaw or design issue but we learn to work with those issues. So far, the R5 is spectacular (for stills). As great as the 5Div was for me, the R5 is better so far. In fairness, I have not yet done any wildlife or BIF nor used my "big white" with an adapter, but I don't think I'll find issues there based on what I've shot so far and based on the reports of others.

Even though I own an EOS R (and a 5 DIV !), I'd order the 5 DV immediately , without seeing it. Why? Because I like its size, shape and ergonomics (large hands...), AND THE OVF !!!!!
Yet, I'm afraid my hopes will be deceived, so that I'll end up buying a second 5 DIV...

Howdy!
Assuming Canon would release a 5D Mark V (as Nikon plans to release a D850 successor), would you be interested?

Have your say and vote!
Nikon's not that smart with their much smaller R&D budget.

I'd follow what Canon appears to be doing is just continue production of 2019/2020 dSLR bodies until 2025/2026.

Focus all resources to more mirrorless full frame bodies to compete with Sony & Canon.

voted "yes" - interested, but it would a decision based on the specs. I do not need the latest shiny new toy unless it serves a valued purpose to improving what I have.

I could be dead by then. I'm fine with keeping what I have, too. btw, I'm libertarian, not conservative.
He meant "conservative" as in photography, not politics, implying that you're behind the times for sticking with older (but tried and true) things like DSLR. That's also "conservative."

I think he's trying to make a dad joke. ;)

dSLR has no more future R&D with Canon. Whatever body, lens or accessory designed for that platform will continued to be made until such a time that it costs too much to make by year 2025/2026

New dSLR bodies with pending mirrorless replacements by Q1 2024

* 2020 Rebel > R Rebel Q1 2023
* 2020 1D X Mk III > R1 Q1 2024
* 2019 90D > R10 Q1 2023

Old dSLR bodies with pending mirrorless replacements before 2022

* 2015 5DS / 5DS R > R5s / R5s R June 2021
* 2014 7D Mk II > R7 Sept 2021

Old dSLR bodies with existing mirrorless replacements

* 2017 6D Mk II > R6
* 2016 5D Mk IV > R5

The mirrorless replacement will have a 10% higher introductory price than its dSLR predecessors'.
