I am kinda sorta in the market for a long white, 300 2.8 or 500 f/4. These are both still in now older version II models, and rumors indicate version III may be RF. Hard to say, since 400/600 came out as EF in their latest III models. These are big investments, and I would love to see how the RF mount could affect optical performance, never mind being better positioned to transition into the native mount lenses for future R model cameras. Sheesh, the A7RIV calls to me sometimes, but I won't answer mostly because I'm not interested (nor could I afford) the Sony 400/600 lenses. The 200-600 they released is reportedly so so. For now I'm happy with my EOS R as a travel and landscape camera with my 5DIV primary for wildlife and occasional other stuff. Plus I just got a 90D for extra reach.

I suspect that they'll be ported to RF with little change.  There isn't much difference the it makes with long, single-focal length lenses.
