R5 buyers, will you keep or sell your dslr?

This post is mostly speculation, as we don't own the R5 yet.

I plan on buying the R5, and I wonder if I'll keep my dslrs. I have 6 cameras: 5D4, 6D, 80D, 90D, and two 1D4.

I don't shoot video, and based on what I've read so far, the R5 should do everything that my dslrs can do. And I like the size and weight of the R5. The width and height are less than my 6D, although the depth (front to back) is about .5 inch larger. Weight of the R5 is about the same as the 6D.

I'm thinking the R5 can replace all my dslrs. Kind of nice, one camera does everything. Of course, I need to use the R5 for a while. Maybe my dslrs will be going up for sale.

Not sure about my lenses, though. I have some expensive glass: 24-70 II, 24-105 II, 70-200 II, and 300 II. If my lenses work well using the adapter, I see no need to replace them with RF lenses.

Ok, just thinking out loud. Anyone else thinking the same?
