What are your thoughts on the AF point array of the 5D or 6D

I like moving around a lot when shooting. I also like using the viewfinder a lot on my 6DII.

However, I feel slightly limited in how my pictures are framed with the available AF point array on my camera. I was considering the 5DIV or 1Dx II, but, considering the price, the EOS R seems like a viable option.

I just don't like EVF. I like looking through an OVF. Am I the only one who prefers OVF to EVF nowadays?

I know I can use liveview, but I am not getting the same experience out of my camera.

Focus and recompose doesn't seem to work that well for me when I am at wide apertures.

What is the upper limit on aperture you would use when focus and recomposing?

I just got in to photography and I love the artistic and technical aspect of it.
