you forgot to include the adaptor purchase and all the possible problems this incurs at some point you will want native mount and a 10k rf 500mm if and when.

While I have not tested it myself from what I understand EF lenses adapted work as well as native lenses with no real performance penalty in terms of AF/tracking.

i don't know about tracking, but most of the 1st-gen canon lenses are not supported at even 12fps mechanical shutter on the r5... 400/2.8 is apparently the worst, none of the versions will do 20fps for example:

"Below is the list of lenses with which the speed for continuous shots of max. Approx. 20 frames / sec. is not expected to decrease (as of July 2020).
EF300mm f / 4L IS USM + Extender EF1.4x III
EF300mm f / 4L IS USM + Extender EF2.0x III
EF400mm f / 4 DO IS USM
EF400mm f / 4 DO IS II USM
EF400mm f / 4 DO IS II USM + Extender EF2.0x III
EF400mm f / 5.6L USM
EF400mm f / 5.6L USM + Extender EF1.4x III
EF400mm f / 5.6L USM + Extender EF2.0x III"

Yes I have seen this which is why as I stated in one of my message before I would have started out with 400mm f4 with 1.4x TC before opting for the 500mm f4 (other reason being the size of 400mm DO lens).

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.
