Now we see through a glass, darkly...

Mirrored 5DV with flip screen and better sensor would be very nice. Would I buy it when I see Canon is putting all efforts into the R line? I don't know. If they announce it right now, before the R5 release, I'd be confused. But if they ever announce it, it'll be long after the R5 release. And I'll have bought either R5 or R5s by then.
That is, the market for 5DV shrinks significantly after the R5 release.
Not every 5D Mark IV buyer is going to immediately jump to the R5. Perhaps not even half or one-quarter of them will.
