++++ The EOS R IMO was a placeholder that Canon can't replace fast enough so nothing to protect...
Correct, however R5 is there to replace R, and R6 - to replace RP.
That's where I disagree...20MP sensor, 4K60FPS, dual card slots, possibly reused 1DX sensor..no way is this entry level...I think the RP will be replaced by a new body below the R6. IMO an RP replacement would be (26+ MP, single card slot, 4K30FPS).
Canon doesn't need a "video focused" body if they have two cameras in their lineup (R5 and R6) that blow away the competition in the video department; oh and happen to take fantastic stills as well. But its going to be a completely different story if the R6 is heavily crippled.
