With 8200 pixels on the horizontal a 1.25 and 1.5 would probably be preferable for shooting cropped?

The 1.25x crop would provide a 28mp crop sensor, aps-h size and essentially a 600 f8 ff dof at 470 6.3 with 100-500, very very nice!

The 1.5 would be just a bit better imo than 1.6 and provide an equally cool 20mp crop aps size and a 700mm f9.5 dof with 470 6.3 with 100-500, also very nice😀

Obviously I can do these crops in post but I think the 1.25 and 1.5 in camera crops would reduce the use for many of the 1.4x tc, although obviously it will depend on your use.

I may decide yet to order the r5 and 100-500

Can’t see the point in a camera crop, just crop in post to where you want.

obviously if you attach an aps-c lens, then the camera will apply a 1.6 crop automatically
