R5s pretty pretty please!
Far too soon. You won't be seeing anything else that's going to be reducing R5 production capacity. It has to be something else that comes out of one of their other factories, so a Rebel makes sense (even if there seems little point to mere mortals in launching a new low end DSLR at this point)

Probably an EOS 2000D/4000D replacement/upgrade

I don't disagree with any of that. Rebels make money, and Canon hasn't updated the cheapest ILC lines in over 2 years. No question that the high resolution body coming shortly is highly unlikely. Though a man can wish, can't he?

the Canon RP and R have been out of stock in a ton of retail and online shops in Europe lately. Hope new models to replace those are coming soon.

Aren’t the new models the R5 and R6? I would think the R and RP are basically done, right?
Hardly. The RP fills a much-needed slot at the low end. The future of the R is a little less certain, although Canon may keep it in the lineup to meet the current price point or at some point they may introduce an RII to slot between the R6 and R5, where there is a huge price gap. Still, I doubt that either of these cameras are R series. More likely Rebels.

I doubt we'll see replacements all too soon. Canon seems to have pretty substantial production shortcomings currently, as not only those cameras are out of stock on some places.

An RII would immediately generate calls for a DII variant.

I can only think of 3 possible mirrored Canon DSLR camera’s that might be tempting for someone to buy over the EOS R series

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (Natural choice still for many pros)

Canon EOS 90D (OK For those who want to shoot sports on a budget)

Canon EOS 250D (Cheap with OK AF and a Twisty Screen)

a new EOS R2 with IBIS, single card slot, new processor, and usable 4k in 24p, 30p and 60p would be great and below that they could have the EOS RP2 with no IBIS, single card slot, better processor and usable 4k in 24p and 30p.

I'm trying to think...has there normally been a slot between the 5 and 6 series? I can't recall one off the top of my head. Its been 5D down to 6D, or before that down to 7D, then the XXD series below that. At least I think.

We don't know what canon is planning yet, but we've got R5, R6, to replace 5D/6D, and R and RP filling in legacy spots in the XXD series and arguably Rebel series (based on price point, one could argue that R is like the XXD series and RP is filling the higher end rebel price point and functionality).

We'll see what happens, but I like the idea of more new stuff to choose from.
