hi. Struggling on which camera to go with next. I am an amateur but strive to take those fantastic shots. Other than general photos, I take photos of sports (triathlons) and aurora borealis, some wildlife and landscape photos too.

Price is not a factor. Tempted to go with R7 but will I miss the flash? It will likely be best for sports, but will it still be the best choice for aurora and other night-sky photography?

My T7i lenses are EF mount so I plan to get the EF/RF adapter to use them on the R7/R10. Hope that will work fine.

If you need stabilization and resolution, get an R7. If you do not care, get an R10. Do not hang on to the built-in flash, get an extra flash on the side. Another thing to mention is the type of battery. However, batteries that are compatible with R10 are relatively cheap but create another step to charge several extra batteries. Other differences are the ergonomic ones with the different cut on the R7. Which is better is subjective.

Several batteries? We have an M6II and an RP. We keep one extra battery each. All day travel with the family and we might go to the backup battery only occasionally. M6II lasts longer than the RP and I expect it will be in line with the R10.

Of course, it depends on how you use the camera and how much in a day. When I had my RP I had 3 batteries for piece of mind. For my R6, I'm never worried about 2 so it's probably the same experience between R7 and R10. But I would not weigh the decision solely on the battery issue.
