I get you. One of the Big Advantage of filming with Sony A7 series is the ability to switch to a crop mode on the fly. A single focus length prime effectively become 2 lens. I think Canon is limiting it to sell us an APSC R7 @$1499 to compete against Fuji XT4.

With R6 price at relatively high $2500, I think there is a GAP assuming EOS-R will not get a replacement.

I switch to crop mode on the fly with my RP. Extra reach. Smaller file size. I can frame in camera the way I want. If I know I won’t be blowing up a picture from vacation beyond a collage in a photo album, why not crop?  10.1 megapixels is enough for 300 PPI on an 8x10.

I mapped it in my menu and mapped many access to my down key. Real quick switching now.
