I'm shocked by the APS-C vs FF Price Difference
2

What really baffles me about the R10 and R7 are the prices.

The R6 at least feels like 700€$ overpriced for me. Is a FF sensor really that much more difficult to produce? Or is this pricing politics, does the R6 have a more advanced body, weather sealing etc. The better viewfinder does not make that much of a difference does it?

I'm not a birder, and more of a shallow depth of field men, so I bought the RP to enter RF. But looking at these new camera's, I'm in doubt if FF is the best way to go. Wonder what Canon will bring up next.

If Canon would market a FF version of the R7, 33MP, same speed, basic weather sealed body, IBIS, that would at least cost 3000€$. So maybe my questions is, is a FF sensor really that hard to produce?
