Thank you for your feedback, Rob. However, it is my understanding that this would require a significant amount of investment. Plus, I’m looking for the crop factor.

Crop factors have no value to maximum subject capture quality.  Only higher pixel density or pixels-on-subject with a longer focal length can do that.

I know you're not looking for an expensive camera right now, but "crop factor" is irrelevant with the new R5 and R6 cameras, as crop mode is totally transparent to the user, with the EVF automatically magnifying the crop.  That 1.6x crop just happens to be only 17.3MP on the R5, and 7.9MP on the R5, so you would actually need to use extra teleconversion or a longer lens to get the pixels-on-subject of a 90D, but with a narrower angle of view.
