I have to say, if Canon haven't done their typical cripple job on the R5, it may well have my business.

The key points I want to see are; DR and high ISO performance, AF, silent shutter performance.

Just out of curiosity - which native RF lenses would you purchase - I don't find a single lens I am longing for - well - maybe the RF 50 f/1.2 due to the creamy Bokeh while being just acceptable with 1 kg - already over the top for my taste but interesting nonetheless.

When I switched from Nikon to Canon it was because of the lenses - and my switch to Sony was because of the lenses and the smaller and lighter form factor.

Sony offers some of the best ever built lenses with a good balance between size, weight and performance and all (top notch lenses) include an aperture ring.

( adapting lenses would be no option for me at any system )

The 50/1.2 for the reasons you've mentioned, and likewise the 85/1.2. For the 85, it does look a lot sharper wide open than the 85GM. I'd imagine there's also a blockbuster 24 & 35 on the way too.

The zooms are also very attractive to me. I was never a fan of the 70-200GM, always thought it was poor on the long end, and the build quality was poor - compounded by lensrentals teardown. Their subsequent teardowns of the RF glass would give me a lot more comfort in build quality.
