I thought I read somewhere that the new R5 IBIS will only work with RF lenses. If true that will be a factor.

Your skepticism is warranted in this case, because this isCanon’s official statement on the matter:

“Additionally, the EOS R5’s IBIS will work in combination with Optical Image Stabilization found in many Canon RF and EF lenses.“

If you try to read between the lines pessimistically, it may mean that certain stabilized EF lenses won’t work with IBIS. But even in that case, it sure sounds like at least some stabilized EF lenses will work in conjunction with IBIS.

Yes that was pretty good news in my view.  At least some EF lenses will get the benefit.  I’m guessing that they will be the newer ones but that’s a lot better than what I was expecting.
