I am a little concerned that they are discontinuing EF lenses, for which there is no RF counterpart.
Once was happenstance (the 200mm f/2), this is now twice.
But there most certainly soon will be. My interpretation; they are freeing up production capacity for new RF lenses. Expect to see suitable equivalents appearing shortly. Perhaps part of the expected 2nd half of 2021 announcements we've been teased/promised.
I like my EF40, but once you add the adapter, I'd just as soon use the new RF50 on my R5. Although I suspect a comparable RF40 would end up in my bag as well...
