In case you are interested in my thoughts on the new camera you can find them here -

Clearly your want and mine align. For bird photography we have been pleading for more MPs and it's not arrived in 1 series. What is so frustrating is Canon not allowing us 1 series features in a higher MP camera but maybe the R5 will address that to some extent. I want FF because of other shooting needs but for birds, which is a high priority, your request of Canon - different crop factors being available, is bang on.

I enjoyed the reactions of the cat.

A fifty MP camera with ISO 25,000 that good sounds unlikely to me.

What he sounds like he rally wants is a souped up 7D.

I don't shoot BIF, so I am less attuned to understanding those needs.
