They don't need to worry about readout speed and fast tracking/focusing with an Rs camera. Once they have the sensor that can pump out that much detail they can plug it in to the regular R for the most part. But you can rest assured the Rx will come to market as soon as they possibly can. Canon knows the clock is ticking, even if they didn't seem to care about it 2 years ago. Sony has certainly lit a fire under that, but new sensor designs don't happen overnight.
The competition does have fast/good tracking and very decent read out skill and Nikon will most likely add a good solid body (better than the R) to their possible z8 so they will have to bring something better than just a new sensor in an old body if you ask me. I’d skip it if it has the current R body, thats for sure
