The new RF 24-105mm f/4.0-7.1 is the same length as the EF-M 18-150mm and only marginally fatter and heavier. The new 24-105mm f/4.0-7.1 lens sounds slow, but if this was a crop lens, it would be equivalent to a 15-65mm f/2.5-4.5. Who here wouldn't love a 15-65mm f/2.5-4.5 lens for the M system?

Maybe, but I'd take the M6II with 18-150 over the RP with the new 24-105 any day. The RP has around 2/3 stop ISO advantage over the M6II, so, in the overlapping parts of the zoom range, you're getting maybe 1/3-1/2 stop IS advantage. If I had to have a camera with just one lens, I'd much rather have the large performance advantages of the M6II, and the considerable extra range on the long end of the 18-150, than the fairly trivial ISO advantages of the RP and the extra wide-angle end of the 24-105.

I think you've summed up the M50/M6ii + EF-M 18-150 vs RP + RF 24-105 f/4-7.1 comparison quite well, these 2 should be quite similar with the 18-150 being a little narrower but adding a lot more range. The key here is the newer M sensor vs the less efficient and older RP sensor. If paired with a better body or newer sensor, the new RF 24-105 f/4-7.1 should give better results and gain another half stop of light gathering advantage but then the cost is no longer comparable.
