I know it is a ridiculous thought just because of the price difference between the tow cameras but has anyone made the switch? If so, why and what were the observations.

You've got a big investment in canon glass.  I've shot, back-to-back, the R5 with the EF 600mmf/4L IS III and shot my a1 with the FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS. You're only likely to notice the present superiority of the a1 if you're shooting bird-in-flight. Otherwise, they're very comparable. The pixel-density is significant, but not huge.
I'd stick with Canon and wait for the R3.
