I have the Tamron 150-600 G2 and love it on my 80D, but focus is slower on the R and a bit buggy.  But if the lighting is bad I use it with the R.  I also used it on 6DMkII and focus was the same as 80D.  Anyhow at 600 f6.3 isn't too bad.  I do use f7.1 usually in good light as the pictures are a bit sharper.  The new RF specs were a let down for me.  I love the 100-400 at f5.6.  The new lens will need more light and I just can't see me spending the money for it.  I don't know why Canon made that lens, unless it's going for a cheaper RF version and will later make a pro version at 200-500 or something.  I'm gonna pass and continue to save for the R5.
