Indeed. I bought an XT3 and XT30 as Canon had no such offering.

If Canon doesn't bring APS-C to the R system then the bulk of my money going forward will be spent on Fuji gear. The older I get the more I will be moving to APS-C for the smaller, lighter weight gear to haul around. While I would prefer to stay with Canon I won't be all that upset if they force me to go with Fuji.

The size and weight arguments are valid in many situations - and that's why I have EOS M equipment - but for long tele lenses there is not much gain to make with APS-C.

The R5 and R6 are not excessively heavy or large and the launch of the RF-600/800 f:11 can be an indication wildlife photographers should not expect something soon. This lens sells a lot of R6/R6 bodies (to people who will buy a better and much more expensive lens later...).

Still...I'd much sooner adapt my 500 f/4 to an APS-C mirrorless - with the added advantage of a FOV equivalent of 800mm - than shoot 600 at f/11.
