Crop sensor Eos R7?

This has probably been discussed already here, but I've been thinking about the potential of a 7D style pro-grade crop sensor Eos R camera, and I really hope Canon decides to make one. I specifically want this to replace my Canon 80D which I'm using as a B camera alongside my Nikon Z6. I use the 80D for vlogging, as a secondary timelapse camera, and for wildlife photography.

My Eos R7 wish list:

18 megapixels for better low light sensitivity

4k 120fps,1080p 240 fps video

Af system from the R5

R5 body with equivalent weather sealing

12fps mechanical 20fps electronic burst rate


$2500 price point

Excellent low light capability would be key, as it would allow it to make good use of Canon's F11 primes. I think 12 MP like the A7S would be too low, and 18 MP seems like a good middle ground for resolution and sensitivity. It would also pair nicely with my Sigma 150-600, and of course my 18-3. 1.8.

Canon probably wouldn't want to undercut its other cameras with video specs such as these, but I can dream!

What do you think? Is Canon likely to make a camera like this, and if so would you be interested in it?
