Backup camera for my R5 ?

I love my R5, but the thing that’s kind of lame, is that with the small birds I often shoot, 600mm is often not enough, so I shoot in the crop mode, which jumps it all the way up to 960mm, which is still not always enough, but it’s sufficient a lot more often. 
Problem then, is that by shooting in the crop mode, I drop my mp’s all the way down to 17mp…. So I better not need to crop it much more in post.

Ive been watching some vids on the R7 and I love that it gives me 960mm all the time, with 30mp too ! I suspect that it might not have quite the image quality as the R5…. But I’d think it would be pretty close in good light ?
Anybody here have both an R5 and an R7 ? Is there another (cheaper) camera that you think would make a better backup ?
