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

As a lifelong wildlife fanatic, I have always found (wild) animals fascinating, and capturing them on camera is currently my favorite hobby. So when I recently had the opportunity to take the Canon EOS R7 (opens in a new tab) On a small whale watching cruise in Sydney, I took the plunge. I jumped on board armed with the RF100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM (opens in a new tab) Y RF 600mm f/11 IS STM (opens in a new tab) Lenses to go along with the camera and as I had anticipated, the performance of the R7 was absolutely fantastic!

It’s really quite impressive what Canon has been able to do with its latest affordable mirrorless camera for enthusiasts: it does everything it says on the tin and it does it well. However, seeing the results after returning home, I realized that an APS-C camera was not for me, at least not when trying to photograph wildlife.

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

Why do I want a full frame 32 MP mirrorless
