The M50 is Canon's best selling mirrorless camera.

I doubt that Canon wants to mess with success, and I doubt that they want to make RF-S lenses.

The M50 is only the best selling camera in Japan. No one cares about it outside of that small country. The Z50 is Nikons best selling mirrorless camera in Japan and Nikon doesn’t have any Z mount APS-C lenses. Sony’s A mount has both APS-C and FF cameras, so does the Z mount. If Canon is serious about the R mount being their main system, they will definitely need APS-C cameras for it. No company has two separate successful mirrorless mounts going on and Canon has said they are all in on the R mount. I can pretty much guarantee the reason we have hardly seen any M mount lenses is because Canon has known for years now the R system is going to be their main system and they will eventually get to APS-C cameras and RF-S lenses. There will be an R mount APS-C sooner than later.

Some have mentioned how 7D users are all about the glass. The big white lenses, and all that. Last I checked those lenses don't come cheap. That typically means that those users then don't have to worry or bother about the FF vs crop prices. The reason to chose the 7D was size, and reach from what I gather. Considering the 7DII was a 20.2 MP camera... why is it not possible for a typical 7DII shooter to not buy a R5 and use it in crop mode for the reach if needed?? Just curious.

Well, that leaves us with around 17mp (if it is 45mp, less at 40mp) to play with. Often wildlife shooters will need to crop from the already cropped image. There is a huge market for wildlife shooters, almost all of the canon wildlife shooters I know use the 7DII and either a 1DX or 5D4. For most the 7DII is their walk around body, probably the one that gets most use. I know it is for me. The difference between 4000 pixels on a subject and 2000 is what will make many spend the money, and want a crop cameras as a result. It is all about pixels on subject at a given distance. The 32mp sensor in an R5 body (as long as the EVF is fast enough) would be a dream of a body and one which I am sure would sell in bucket loads.
