In all seriousness, the lock switch and the photo video mode switch are in fact huge upgrades to the functionality of the R6. The aforementioned lock switch as opposed to a button is nice change as I like to just look down at my camera and see that the lock switch is on. (Like on my 1DX Mark III's). And the photo video switch should (theoretically) allow custom modes now in both photo and video. Nice! I love functionality changes like that.

Most likely by default a focus hold button.
I would imagine it would be customizable to whatever you want.

By the looks of it there are 2. One for vertical grip and one for horizontal.
Makes sense, though I would suspect they are not independent buttons but rather do the same thing. Like the four unlabeled buttons on supertele lenses (default is AF stop).

What is the button on the 135L?
The same as the botton on the big whites and some G-Master lenses.
Great to put a function of your preference to this botton (visit the menue in your camera setting)

The function is heavily depending on your genre/ shooting style.

In my experience great added value.

Size wise anywhere in between the 50 1.2 and the 24-70 2.8, 82mm filters, I would say. Not the monster like those RF85 1.2s
IS makes it a reasonable companion to my EF 85 1.4.

Let's wait about IQ and close up performance (Milvus & Sony offer 0.25x)
Thanks to Sony limiting Canon's phantasies in prizing .......

Maybe my brain is ruined because of inflation and what not but does $2099 for a 1.8 L lens from Canon seem ... reasonable? I was expecting to be very disappointed with the 3000+ price tag.
I was expecting it to be slightly more expensive than the RF85 f/1.2L, due to the IS. I'll wait to the actual price in Euros before agreeing with it being '... reasonable' :)
