Hmmm... interesting perspectives.

I had vaguely heard from someone (a retailer) saying early RP reports battery issues (probably overheating, maybe short battery life).

The thing is, I don't want to have to buy new lenses. I am happy with the set

That's different.

Canon's new lenses - like the new lenses from Nikon - are pretty remarkable on the mirrorless bodies.   While you don't have to buy a new lens, I expect you'll want to try at least one new lens that is optimized for the camera.

You can be sure the R5 will be an exceptional camera.  Get the lens released with that body and see what you think.
