Wow it's tiny! But no IS it seems...

And no Macro. This cheapo lens is precursor to the next entry-level R body (along with that rumored slow standard zoom).

I don’t need either feature, but no IS means Canon is nudging people toward IBIS bodies. Or, could all of the future R’s perhaps have IBIS? Or is Canon just trying to maximize R5/R6 sales while they can.

Maybe they realize that hardly any 50mm primes have stabilization and most people don't have a huge problem maintaining 1/60 shutter speeds with an f1.8 aperture available.

Maximize R5/6 sales?  Nobody is buying a super expensive camera just to stabilize a cheapo lens.

For the entire 30+ year history of the EOS SLR system, from 1987 to today, there was not single stabilized 50mm lens option.  How did we manage?
