I would not be so sure. As I posted elsewhere, Sony is rumored to be re-working the designs of some of their upcoming cameras due to parts shortages. I would be shocked if Canon's supply chain isn't also somewhat affected. Assembled in Japan, sure, but plenty of parts from China in there I'm sure.I like the graphic. This camera is probably be assembled in Japan. They may use parts from China, but those would probably have already been sourced in so they could begin building inventory. I think it is only going to be an issue if reported cases in Japan continue to climb over those involved in the cruise ship.
Since the 5Dii and 7D era, those were considered professional/consumer (ie prosumer) level, and the 1D is strictly professional level product segment. How Canon structure their product, calling it prosumer or pro, can be different than how we perceive it. So the R5 should be called as prosumer because it's using the same battery power as the 5D w/ only two li-ion cells.When you say "professional" are you referencing a 1dx III replacement/mirrorless clone? The R5 spec you leaked looks like it would equal/surpass the 5dIV - which is considered a "professional" camera for most other uses than wildlife/sports. Please clarify.
I think you're reading way too deep into marketing jargon. They called it the R5 to convey exactly where they expect to place it in the market. Why else would they jump right from EOS R to R5?good catch, flag ship would mean 6k plus price and their answer for top spot on the mirrorless market. And a replacement for the 1d "flagship DSLR line.
That Fro-knows-photo guy just did a video with the 1DxMkIII where he used some kind of weird adapter that allows the LCD on the back of the camera to be used with an eye cup. That worked out pretty stellar for him. It simulated mirrorless performance as he just locked the shutter out of the way and used live view to shoot.
If you had read the entire post you might have seen that I qualified my opinion with "Unless there is somehow no lag in the EVF". And it was just that, an opinion about this upcoming camera, not an opinion and rude response about another persons opinion. Sad to see that even though we are interested in the new camera, and came her to speculate about it as we have few specs, people have to attack others.Thinking about it, it makes no sense at all for you to judge the suitability of the R5 for any purpose. You haven’t used one, haven’t seen one, and don’t even have complete specs.

I'm sure Canon is still hoping to put this out for July, but I'd be surprised to see any official announcement of a release date until the uncertainty around this virus subsides.
Totally a band aid. But that camera also has 20fps like the R5 and in that mode used the same AF mechanism (meaning sensor based, not the separate AF point detector) as a mirrorless would - and the technology performed. It was an interesting review in that it showed there are actually some advantages to what mirrorless could bring to sporting photographers. A limited proof of concept, and a good look at what could be when the EVF technology limits lag.Not sure how a lot of people would feel about lifting the camera higher to bring the LCD up to the correct height. It could work for a little bit, but in the long run of some shoots it might be tiring. That's def a band-aid.
