Its about protecting the sales of high end cameras, like the R3 and R1 when its turns up, sure the sensors are different, but its not all about that, with only a single battery the high speed frame rate runs out of puff, quicker than dual /or bigger battery option cameras, look at the R3 , much bigger buffer, battery has more grunt to keep on motoring, than the R7, put grip on R7 it would motor on too.

Those sales are protected nevertheless due to the feature set the higher end provides. Just putting on a grip does not give those features to lower end cameras. Look at older lower end dslr's which had grips, their performance was nowhere close to the flagships.

Are you suggesting you get all the grunt of R3 in R7 for $1500?

And why would Canon only protect the sales of one of their products and not the other. I'm sure they want to sell everything they make. The product differentiation is all but natural and a good thing, unless you want them to price everything like R3 today
