Does the new R5 change your roadmap?

Re: Forget the R5, look at the 24-105mm f/4.0-7.1

As R&R said the new RF lenses sound interesting like this STM and the 100-500. But I have to ask will the new RF 24-105 STM be any better than the EF 24-105 STM? I agree the EF-S and EF-M lineups both really need a high quality normal zoom like the 24-105 L provides for FF.

For me the 24-70 equivalent lens of the G1X3 fills this roll. This camera is a 14 oz jewell and compares very well in IQ to my 5D4 + 24-105 L or 6D2 + 24-70 f4 L. FF is certainly better but when I don't want to carry it I turn to the G. Well captured images look identical to me on my output devices. I use the M6II for light weight reach or with its excellent 11-22. The G sits in the middle for a <4 lb kit when FF is too much.
