Who is the crop RF body for? Nobody is buying a crop body to buy 4 figure glass wider than 85mm or so. And people who want the reach crop bodies have to offer are probably OK with adapting EF glass. I just don't see the point.

EF glass will not last forever.

What's your timeline for said failure? There are 40-50 year old lenses still retaining pretty serious value today. Any new EF lens you buy today should last at least half that long if you take care of it.

Canon have made it quite clear RF is their future.

Are you one of those people who hear "RF is our priority" and thinks they are shutting down EF production and support tomorrow?

There are a lot of reasons why people want crop, more than just the obvious.

Can you name some, and how an RF crop body would help them over an EF-S or EF-M body?
