Canon, where is mine RF 85 1.8 and 50 1.8?!

Dear Canon, please tell me. You are now 2 years on a market with R cameras, you made some awesome professional lenses for the system, also R cameras are fine tools. Prices went down and Eos R is really a nice body to consider, in mine opinion. But what the hell, where are normal affordable sub 1000 lenses?! Where are mine RF 85 1.8, 50 1.8?! When I will get my hand on that? I feel like choosing R was a bad move -- look, Nikon, Sony and, to some extent, Lumix all have affordable fast primes. Why the hell we do not have them for RF mount? I feel like that is a catch, EF lenses are fine, for sure, but there is no such thing as a great 85 or 50 1.8 there also. So what you are waiting for? Christmas?

And well, no, it's not hard. Both 85 and 50 are classics. Designs are well known, c'mon, even old 70's Nikon double gauss lenses like 85 1.8 and 105 2.5 works awesome in 2020, so do not tell me you can not or it's hard. Na! It's not. Nikon can, Sony can, Sigma can also, Tamron and even no name Chinese doing it! What the hell is needed to just take your ass out of a coach and go do thing people need?!
