I have already sold some of my EF gear (5dIV , 200-400 f4, 70-200 f2.8 II) in prep for moving to the R5 or abandoning Canon for another solution, Based on rumors and expectations, I will pre-order R5, R6, RF 24-105 f4, and RF100-500 plus some accessories. I will watch the reviews and can always bail if Canon doesn’t deliver on expectations. Selling the 200-400 was more about weight than a move to RF, although it does free up a nice piece of cash. I do believe the R5 will be a great camera. As a wildlife shooter, I have to confirm the EVF and AF can handle the action. If the R5 can match or exceed my 1dx II, the rest of my EF gear will go up for sale.

I just sold my 400 DO II. Last fall I sold my 5d4 and 24-70.

The RF 24-105 f4 is a nice lens. Far better than the original EF version. I too am selling everything else and going RF but first waiting to see where this goes. If something does not pan out more than likely Sony. I have enough to get the A7 III and the 200-600.

The 400 DO II is such a wonderful lens. Don’t you feel like you’ll be downgrading in the lens department though?

It was not an easy decision. Yes but sometimes you need to make a move. We will see what happens when the RF version come out.

My thought is the 300 f2.8, 500 f4, 400 f4  DO II, 200-400 f4 are the most likely candidates for RF big whites since they didn’t get EF updated in the last round.
