This is wishful thinking.
However, I very much doubt that the next Canon FF mirrorless model will really give us everything that the Sonys give us.
I guarantee that Canon will leave something out. They won't give us everything that we really want/ned because they will be too worried about protecting their pro video camera line, or their flagship DSLR. That's what they always seem to do - hold something back, so that we never get everything we want in one camera body.
Even if they put almost all of the features in that we've been asking for, would they withhold an articulating screen? IBIS? FF 4k?
Their marketing department keeps telling us how incredible their cameras are, and yet every single new body has something that turns up missing.
A few months ago I said somewhere in one of these forums, probably at the introduction of the 6D Mk 2, that instead of worrying about losing sales from one of their camera lines to a different line and deliberately crippling certain cameras (like not improving the sensor in the 6D in 5 years), they should worry about losing sales to other camera manufacturers. To me this looks like they've stepped up in the department quite a bit, I'm not down on this camera at all, looks good to me, maybe because a few of the bigger complaints don't really apply to things I shoot (fps, 4k). Otherwise, with a 30 megapixel sensor that appears to be at least in line with the 5d MK IV, seems to be a lot to like in this one.
