Has anyone tested the EF 200mm f/2L IS on the EOS R?

I'm curious as to how this lens performs on the EOS R. I know most Canon lenses have been reported to be fully compatible and fast(er) autofocusing, but this is a rarer lens so if anyone has tried it out or seen a report, I'd love to know!

I believe a poster named Jonesy on Fred Miranda did, if I remember correctly.

The photos I saw from him were amazing if it’s the same lens.  It was a recent post in the canon forum of FM.

Sorry-I just double checked his lens posting and it was the 200 1.8.  AND it took amazing images.  He also posted his shots with the RF 85mm 1.2 and they were quite nice as well.
