Kit question - does this make sense?

Hey all,

I recently got an R6 and absolutely love it.  I am an enthusiast who mainly shoots wildlife and some landscapes.  Currently my lenses for this camera are the Canon RF 24-105 STM, Canon RF 35 1.8 Macro, Viltrox RF 85 1.8 and Canon EF 100-400L IS II.

While I love the 100-400, it's HEAVY and my back isn't in the greatest shape, so after a while, it gets a little painful.

Here's my situation.  I'm thinking of trading in my RF 24-105 STM, RF 35 STM and EF 100-400L IS II at my local camera shop for the new RF 100-400 and a "like new" RF 24-105L.  I've seen great reviews on the new RF 100-400, and is significantly lighter than the EF 100-400L.  Also, I like the idea of getting the RF 24-105L.  I've only used the 35mm once, so I will throw that in with the trade.

I will be keeping the Viltrox RF 85 as it's a great lens and I've already done some published portrait work with it.

Would you do the trade?  It would end up costing me about $100 or so out of pocket.
