Got rid of the 5DIV and all my EF lenses after getting the R with the RF50 1.2 and 70-200mm. Should be getting my R5 soon.

The 5DIV seemed much faster and more responsive, you can leave it in sleep setting all day long. The R (not sure about R5) will continue AF constantly so you have to turn it off when not in use. This was probably my biggest complaint.

The RF lenses are noticeably sharper edge to edge. With my older EF L lens, I always had to center the face to get sharp eyes, with the RF, I can place the eyes anywhere. Also, the EF 50mms were all terrible, the RF 50 1.2 is amazeballz

I think this is the approach I'll be taking - suck it up and fully commit to RF lenses.

Only PROBLEM is that the RF lineup isn't built-out yet... so you don't have a mix of optically amazing lenses and good-but-compact/slower-aperture lenses.
