Well, I supposed Canon "could" sell you the exact same hardware they have now and just disable the video parts for you....Market research will probably say that McDonald's has the best food, because they sell more food than most other restaurant chains. Market research might say that K-pop is great music and that the Marvel movies are great cinema. The masses also buy overpriced s**t like an iPhone.
I wonder how much YouTube influences the decisions for video. It is an important platform, but is has a great bias for video, as all YouTuber create videos and most want video in their cameras. So when a camera comes without video or with "only" 1080p, they complain a lot.
Would we even have mirrorless cameras if it wasn't for video?
I wish Canon would at least give us the option of buying a camera without video. Leaving a feature away can't be very expensive.
Not sure if they would cut the price of this "stills only" model for you tho....
