If you want just one RF lens to start, get the $200 RF 50mm. It’d be a fun way to learn the control ring and compatibility with your new body and wouldn’t break the bank. Should be released soon.

Other more economical lenses include:

RF 35mm f/1.8 IS macro 0.5 ($400 - current sale)

RF 85mm f/2 IS macro 0.5 ($600)

RF 24-105 IS f/4.5-7.1 ($400? I think?)

RF 24-240 IS f/4-6.3 ($700 - current sale)

All will get you into RF glass for less than $700.00 each. None are ‘L’ glass. Kind of defeats your goal of weather sealed though (on account of that big hole where the lens goes).

Cheapest deal in ‘L’ is the 24-105 f/4 for $1,100 or so?

Or get the $200 ring adapter
(best bang for buck in mirrorless to add to an R5 or R6) and learn with the Ef lens.

I have the adapter. Not the control ring version.  Only have one EF lens that isn’t EF-S though. Probably should sell it. I hear they are in high demand.
