If everything goes the way it has so far, the new RF lenses would end up being launched at a substantially higher price than the EF counterparts, and won't be easily available for months

I imagine the new big ones will come at today's R&D costs as opposed to a decade or more old design. They will undoubtedly be better but at a cost.

And, we don't know when they will come and in what order. I don't expect all EF equivalents to drop at the same time

So, if you ask me... If you want a 500, and can get a good deal on one... Go for it. You can enjoy it now, and revisit when something eventually shows up
