I'd buy the Sigma 16mm f/1.4, but I've heard the lens might need calibration.
I've also heard of Sigma lenses so far out of adjustment that they can't be calibrated.
If I had a tech who I trusted to calibrate it, it would fine, but I don't...

Sorry to spread rumors. Google for "sigma calibration" if you want sources.

So it would be great if Canon made a 15mm !
Do Canon lenses ever require calibration straight out of the box ?
Calibration for what? I think you refer to DSLR lenses because mirrorless lenses don't need AF adjustment or calibration.

Does this mean an APS-C EOS R just got a lot less likely?
There was never any real prospects of an APS-C EOS R. Canon could but won't make one.
It's something the internet keeps talking about, but Canon representatives explicitly said at the launch of the RF mount that it is designed for Full Frame glass and will replace EF going forward.

Canon really needs to look at making some more serious lenses for the EF-M system. Currently the only lenses that do the M6 Mark II's 32MP sensor justice are the 11-22mm, 32mm, 22mm, and 28mm macro lenses. We need a much sharper "18-55mm" kit lens, sharper 18-150mm lens, and a sharper 55-250mm lens. Heck, maybe even make an L grade lens or two for the rumored M5 Mark II (the 32mm is pretty close to L grade already). It's great that Canon is still committing to the EF-M system, but they need to take it to the next level with lenses. Adapting L grade EF lenses is always an option, but those lenses will not be available forever now that RF lenses are replacing them and there's no real sign that there will ever be an optical RF to EF-M adapter.

Agreed.
And I also believe new lenses are on the way, starting with a 55mm f/2.0-ish prime to serve as a portrait lens and an 82mm-ish f/2.8 Macro. An EF-M 18-55mm II would be nice since the first one was designed for fewer megapixels.
