My post processing starts with Photo Mechanic to quickly find the good stuff for Lightroom to process. But, some shoots can include several thousand images and I'm looking for a faster way to weed out the bad, out of focus images.

Does anyone know of software that can analyze Canon raw files to pre-sort the out of focus images from the potentially good images?

Would you take advice from a cartoons stuffed toy?

If you have two similar images, that is they were shot in a sequence with the same iso, generally the larger file size will have more detail.

You can write a less than 10 lines of code in Python to calculate Laplacian variance for the edges and point it to a folder that has the images in it. This video shows the trick. Of course there are other ways to do this using other image processing libraries.

Is there a Python library to handle CR3 format files?

I use the compare function in Lightroom, set the first image of a group as the reference and start thru them. I replace the first image with a better one when I find one. I reject the poorer ones. It goes very fast. I do not machine gun images at 10 fps because of the time it takes to find the best out of hundreds, I've been there and don't want to go back!
