Hi there!

I have at the moment a Canon 700D with the kit lens, the EF-S 10-18mm STM and the EF 35mm f/2.

I'm thinking of buying into the mirrorless system, because I have a daughter with 20 months, and I want to be able to photograph her and take some videos where I can rely on the autofocus.

I know the R7 has IBIS and better video, but I'm no birder nor do I shoot sports. Are the R/RP better options for me or are they too long on the tooth?

The R7 would be a very nice upgrade. You can easily adapt the 10-18 STM lens to the R7, and the 35 f/2. The AF will easily grab your daughter's eyes. Plus in low light it will work much better than your 700D.

I owned the R, and now have the R6. its main purpose is to take pics of my family, especially the grandkids. The improvements of the R6 in AF are noticeable. The R7 is similar in that regard to the R6. It will also have a better resale value if you upgrade in the future, though it appears that you keep your body for quite a while.
