As far as I'm aware, EF adapts to R without issue. Is that not correct?

Depends what you mean by no issue.

The quality of image from an EF mount lens is limited by the mount design/optics - R mount lenses are significantly better, so there's the #1 issue right there sticking with EOS.

AF abilities of an adapted lens etc, can't comment.

GF series lenses are next gen compared to EF - by a considerable margin.

One of the key reasons to move to GFX - lenses outlast bodies.

Thanks for clarifying. On ebay, the EOS R is even cheaper than the 5d Mk IV, so this is no loss.

I hope it won't be too long until I can also get the GFX100.
