I own a canon 5d mark IV for a few years. I own also a canon EF 24-70 f2.8ii and a sigma 24-105f4 art. 90% of my shooting (events-christenings) I am using the 24-105 sigma lens. The canon 24-70 focuses faster and it's a bit sharper but the extra zoom for the 105 are very very useful for me. Also I found the sigma 24-105f4 art much better and sharper than my old canon EF 24-105f4L lens.

I think it's about time to upgrade to a canon R6 and I don't know if I should buy the RF 24-105f4L lens or stretch a bit more and go for the RF 24-70?

How is the Rf 24-105mm lens in terms of sharpness /focus speed etc? If it's near the performance of the 24-70 then I will buy it and save some money for a prime RF lens, probably the RF 85mm F1.2L for some beauty studio portraits

Buy the lens later.  You might not need RF mount lenses.  The RF to EF lens adapter is just a metal mount to hold the EF the right distance from the lens.  Your EF mount lenses will work the same way on the R6 as the 5DmkIV.  Some focusing will be better on the R6 since the AF is on sensor.

The RF 24-105 is a great lens.  Has the benefits from Canon improving with each 24-105 generation/model.  Especially if you need the 105mm reach.  Mine came with the EOS R kit and was well worth it.
