It looks like I incorrectly assumed the speed of the upcoming RF 24-105mm lens (I should know better). Canon is instead releasing an RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM with 0.4x – 0.5x macro through the entire zoom range.
Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM:

13 elements in 13 groups
Minimum focusing distance: 0.2m (AF) /0.13m (MF) 
Maximum shooting magnification: 0.4x (AF / 105mm) / 0.5x (MF / 24mm)
5 stops of image stabilization
Filter diameter: 67mm
Size: 76.6mm x 88.8mm
Weight: 395g

We expect this lens to be announced officially very soon.

In a world without crop (just imagine and work with me for a minute) this would seem like a very nice kit lens for entry level R bodies. Ok, now back to reality...what makes 28-88 such a great focal length anyway for 1.6 kit glass? 24-105 seems like a much more reasonable general purpose range.

This seems like a very nice kit zoom for their entry R bodies. It can get very unusually huge magnification at all zoom levels. It's not what I'm looking for, but will probably sell very well at a low cost, particularly for those R bodies without IBIS.

Macro shooters: could this lens replace other lenses in your kit, or is the magnification too low?

Who shoots landscape and macro at wide apertures? Sure you can but...

Actually I use wide apertures for macro, but I have a VERY specific use case in mind. I readily acknowledge my situation is unusual.

If f/7.1 works for people, then this sounds like a good thing!

f/8-16 usually works for most people, but this isn't 1:1 and serious macro, unusual or not will not be the job for this tool.
