Glass half full for the photographers and casual videographers aka content creators is they can avoid paying for the 1K gadget till it's cheaper or needed.
Looking at both C of R5C & Z attributes, my impression is Canon is trying to repurpose their photo gear to a more seriouse video gear but not quite there for a co-existing workhorses. In a bigger picture, they are planing for tiktok vs. Instagram kind of scenario.

I still think there are too many letters on such products; could be an indication of several sub group hierarchy they have in their company.
