Camera upgrade question...R5 vs A7RIV

Hi, I've gotten some great feedback on the Sony forum. I am upgrading from m43 and have narrowed it down to the R5 and A7RIV. I actually think I would be happy with either, but there are a few aspects of each that appeal to me.

I shoot mostly landscape and nature, and usually on a tripod....but I would love to hand hold more and still get a sharp image.

I crop ALOT. I rarely use 3:2 aspect ratio.

I shoot in bad weather (rain, snow) and dusty conditions.

I switch very frequently between landscape and portrait (my L-bracket is my best friend) and I only use the screen - no EVF.

My Canon concerns:

1. The biggest draw for me to Sony is the megapixels for cropping. Since I will crop most of my images just for aspect ratio.....is the Canon not a good choice for me? Or am I underestimating what 45 MP can do?

2. Is the flip screen going to be more annoying to deal with the L-bracket? I've found at least 1 L-bracket that will allow for full use of the flip screen either horizontally and vertically but it seems it will take a lot of maneuvering to switch back and forth. I always thought I wanted a flip screen but now I am questioning this.

The Canon advantages seem to be:

-Better IBIS? Substantially better than Sony? How would it compare to my Panasonic IBIS with native lenses?

-Many people mention Canon has better color, if I always shoot in raw....dumb questions...how is color better or worse?

-Weather sealing?

Thanks so much!!
