Does the new R5 change your roadmap?

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

This has thrown a spanner in the works for my upgrade plans.

The main improvements i'd like over my current M6:

  • Improved low light performance (auto focus) as i take a lot of photography at night
  • IBIS for my increasingly shaky hands and non-IS prime EF-M lenses

I was set on purchasing the M6 mk2 during the next bout of sales here as this would give an improvement on the first point... but now the R5 is announced with IBIS, i'm wondering if i should wait until the EOS M line gets IBIS.

While i'm sure the R6 would satisfy my requirements, it is going to be far too costly and less portable than the M6.

My last trip i only took the Sigma 16/1.4 and 55-200, loved the lightness of the kit that covered nearly all bases. In the RF range i guess i would look at the 35/1.8 but there's not much in the way of small/lite zooms.
