In recent years low light AF has been improved significantly. EOS R's low light AF is just amazing. It will likely improve even more in the coming years. So, f/7.1 won't be an issue for AF. High ISO will be an issue though in low light. Those who mostly shoot in low light this lens is not for them.

As far as I know, Canon haven't given any specs for the R5 sensor. What if it performs a stop better than current at higher ISO? This is the problem with all this conjecture and speculation... ultimately it's a waste of time until we have some solid facts.

I wasn't specifically talking about R5. But you are right, R5/R6 or another future body might have one stop high ISO advantage over say EOS R.
