According to Nokishita, we will see the following lenses this year:

RF50mm F1.8 STM
RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM
RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM
RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM
RF600mm F11 IS STM
RF800mm F11 IS STM

Those F11 apertures are crazy!
They make the EF 400mm f/5.6 and 300mm f/4 look downright fast!

Yeah, i don't see much point of that 600mm F11. Unless it's really sharp and great and very affordable, like under $1000.
Losing almost 2 stops compared to a Sony 200-600 or a Sigma 60-600 is too much. Can be ok in good light tho.
The two teles are almost certainly two of the rumored "affordable" non-L lenses that have been mentioned in previous rumors.

Strange, DLA for f/11 is starts around 24MP on full frame, The RP, R and R5 are all above that. Only the rumoured R6 would not the diffraction limited when using the f/11 lenses wide open.

I wonder if a new release of DPP will make DLO even more awesome.
These will be non-L consumer grade lenses. The folks who use such lenses, for the most part, aren't concerned with what the diffraction limited aperture of their camera is.

Anybody know how the cards are going to work together , you can buy a CFexpress card at 512GB which gives you 1700mb a sec speeds but the best SD card is only 128GB Extreme Pro 300MB/s UHS-II SDXC Card , so only gives you 300 MB a second , story if seems a dumb question but I have not used a camera with dual slots before.
If the past is any indicator, when recording still images to both cards simultaneously the bus speed of both interfaces will be the same - maintained at the lower speed bus' data rate. Even if one is saving raw files to the faster card and only JPEGs to the slower card it will significantly slow down the write speed to the faster card and limit how fast the buffer can be cleared.

Wow. I stand corrected. Does not make a lot of sense to me. Anyway...
They can't release them until the embargo is lifted. Once the camera has been made official, they are then free to publish them.

Notice that Canon officially introduced the camera on January 6, 2020.

DP Review published that gallery on January 7, 2020.

I am upgrading from the 5D4 as well but I am much more excited about other aspects. The RF lenses are amazing, I tested out my new 85 1.2 DS the other day and it hits focus so much more reliably than the EF 1.2 - I am also moving to the 28-70 f2 for events (24-70 2.8 II was on my camera 90% of the time) and this new lens feels like a mix of that lens with portrait lens perks :D dual card slots, IBIS, eye tracking / animal eye tracking , RF mount, and significantly faster cards are all reasons to be very happy! From what people are saying it is going to be 44.7 Megapixels (as video ratio different to photography ratio) anyway :D
44.9 MP when you make it 8,208 x 5,472 so both sides of 3:2 still images are divisible by 16 like every other Canon EOS sensor ever made.
