5Ds crop modes only work in JPG mode!!!?!!!!

From CPN:

"

Menu screen showing the crop options – including 1:1, 1.3x, 1.6x, 4:3 and 16:9 – that are available in the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R DSLRs. The 4:3 and 16:9 aspects are only available when using Live View mode.

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R allow you to choose from three crop options which are shown in the viewfinder to help you to compose – choose either to see these as outlines or as a masked area. JPEG images are captured at the selected crop setting while RAW files are captured full-frame with the crop shown in DPP, allowing for fine adjustment afterwards.

The 1.3x and 1.6x crops are convenient for those times when a teleconverter is not available. Shooting with the 1.3x crop will give you a 30.5 Megapixel still, whilst using the 1.6x crop option gives a 19.6 Megapixel still. A 1:1 aspect ratio setting allows square-frame images to be composed accurately, producing images with a ratio similar to that used by some medium format cameras. Additional 4:3 and 16:9 aspects are only available when shooting using the Live View mode of the cameras."

Wow so crop modes could be good for increasing buffer, fps and saving storage space and.... their ridiculous version of crop modes fails on all accounts unless you shoot jpgs only! (and since the buffer was not an issue for jpgs to begin with and even the storage space not THAT bad for jpgs and since it doesn't increase fps....).

Wow they even messed up the crops modes! JPG only? What?

And I gotta love how they talk about how you want to go to JPG+crop mode when you forget your TC so as to get extra reach?? Huh??? Do they think users are THAT gullible these days?
