I have an EF400 f/5.6 which is cheap (especially 2nd hand) and light and a fantastic lens which would work great with an R cameraExactly. And not just more affordable, but also smaller and lighter. I have been looking for some time for a telephoto lens for my R kit. Anyhting over 300mm is either too expensive or too heavy (or both). And 300mm offers not particular advantage to lenses I have in my M4/3rds system. I have considered various 100-400mm lenses, the new RF 100-500, and some Sigma alternatives. They are all too expensive or too heavy (or both). What I will buy is an EF 70-300mm lens paired with a Crop camera, giving me the more reach then the 400mm lenses in a smaller and less heavy lens.

I prefer my new EF100-400 ii though even though it's a bit heavier as it's so versatile and I can use for macro as well
Buy a 7D ii and EF 400 f/5.6 second hand, cheaper than new R7 body and RF800 . Here’s a shot I took with my 7Dii and EF400 f/5.6like i get 500 buck a month because i am a freshmen i high school cheap
All I'm saying is this: the chance that Canon will offer 90 MP 20 FPS mechanical in the high resolution R (R5s) at a equal or lower price than the R5 is 0 %.When you say: “get the most out of”, then you’re saying the body with the highest IQ. Do you think that will be an APS-C body?
traditionally, APS-C has NEVER been at the high end, once FF came out. It’s a compromise product category, which as I said earlier, is why you don’t find high end lenses specifically made for it by the major camera manufacturers.
I guess trimming the R5 sensor down to 17.3 megapixels wouldn't be enough, so it will be something different, I guess an updated version of the 32 megapixel sensor with 4k60p capability.
If Canon just adds the best aps-c sensor they can make to the R6 body and ditches ibis and an AA filter then you have an ideal replacement to the 7Dii with minimal development cost and it’ll sell well.All I'm saying is this: the chance that Canon will offer 90 MP 20 FPS mechanical in the high resolution R (R5s) at a equal or lower price than the R5 is 0 %.
There is however a decent chance that this rumored APS-C RF body is meant to appeal to the 7D market segment by providing the highest available pixel density (90 MP FF, 32 MP APS-C) and mechanical speed (20 FPS, found in the 1DX III). And as APS-C has traditionally been priced below the 5 series, there is also a good chance this would cost less than the R5.
Mind you, we are talking a specialized camera here. No lenses made only for APS-C, no focus on cheap or small and light. Simply make it as optimized for focal length restrained wildlife as possible.
Lack of APS-C lenses (slower, cheaper, lighter, less IQ) in the RF mount probably. And the fact that splitting the low to mid end APS-C market between the EF-M and RF mount sounds like a poor choice, given how well the EF-M system does what it does (be small and sell well) and how Canon have positioned RF as all about quality rather than compactness or affordability so far.After the R7 is released what makes you think the Rebel line won't convert to mirrorless as well?
That's really the interesting bit. Which consumers is this aimed at. An R6 with only a crop sensor sounds more like a successor to the 90D to me (Edit: realize you want to also remove the IBIS, so it wouldn't even be a proper upgrade for the 90D), rather than a true 7 series. But it may be possible that the market that's really looking for the qualities of former 7 series bodies is just to small to support such a product nowdays, and so they'll have to buckle up for a R5s for reach, R1 for speed or R5 for a mix of both.... then you have an ideal replacement to the 7Dii with minimal development cost and it’ll sell well.
If you want more clarity, check out my thread about just that topic: https://www.canonrumors.com/forum/threads/equivalency-now-with-pictures.39787/Sure. But there is a lot of debate on if cropping hurts the image more than a crop sensor. I personally do not have much clarity on this.
They are not going to ditch the AA filter, unless it is specifically made for resolution, like an R5sIf Canon just adds the best aps-c sensor they can make to the R6 body and ditches ibis and an AA filter then you have an ideal replacement to the 7Dii with minimal development cost and it’ll sell well.
Hoping it’s a bit cheaper than the R6 but I will buy it anyway if it’s the same price
Not to mention the build quality of a 1d series camera, the AF of a 1 d series camera and the ergonomics ofa 5d series camera all wrapped up in the price of a 6d series cameraIs that what the point is? Funny, all these years I've been using a 7Dii to get a higher pixel density under a small central subject with a long tele. Silly me.
I don't think you are getting any 'reach' though. In fact, I'm nearly sure. The lens projects the same image circle, regardless of what mode you are shooting in. Crop mode just takes an APSc sized section out of the middle of it. So you are just getting the same image, at the same apparent magnification, just with the outer 28mp already cropped off for you.I just tried the R5 on 1,6x mode and the results are great, you get the same IQ as the R5 and the longer focals advantage, and you get 17MP files that are enough for most people. They will probably get it up to 20MP just because it's a psychologic number people want, but I'm not afraid of the IQ of such a sensor. Wildlife and sports enthusiasts will buy full cargos of those cameras ! And hopefully it will also increase the volumes and allow Canon to reduce prices on some categories of lenses to match it.
