The Canon EOS R7 is a great camera… that’s convinced me APS-C is not for me

As a lifelong wildlife enthusiast I’ve always found (wild) animals fascinating and capturing them on camera is currently my favorite thing to do. When I recently got the opportunity to go on a small whale watching cruise in Sydney with the Canon EOS R7, I jumped at it immediately. I hopped on board with the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM and RF 600mm f/11 IS STM lenses to accompany the camera and as I expected, the R7’s performance was absolutely fantastic!

It’s really quite impressive what Canon has achieved with its latest affordable enthusiast mirrorless – it does what it says on the tin and does it well. However, when I saw the results upon my return home, I realized that an APS-C camera is not for me, at least not when trying to photograph wildlife.

So I have a request for Canon… can we get a full frame version of the EOS R7? You know, something with a 32-megapixel stacking sensor, image stabilization, fast burst speed, a decent buffer depth, and great autofocus and subject-tracking performance? That would be really great.
