The telescoping zoom makes me wish I'd kept my EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, however, since I really don't need anything longer than a 135mm f/X.X I'll wait and see what comes out next year.

As far as the 85mm DS goes... I'm plenty happy with my current RF 85mm. I can't see any advantage in the sample photos I've seen. Not for me personally, anyway.

The RF 70-200 weighs in at almost a full pound (420g) less than EF version. That alone has me chomping at the bit for a pro RF body.

70-200 is extending? Is that the first one, in their L line of whites?
No. Both 100-400's and the 70-300 L, along with the 35-350L and the 28-300L at least, I'm sure people can think of others.

I've heard a lot about the concerns with the telescoping 70-200, but if I'm honest I am happy it telescopes to keep the pack size down so much. I'm sure there will be some risk with sucking particles of dust or water vapour into the lens, but I'd probably accept that for the packed size. I've never had an issue with my 24-105 or my 24-70 which both extend quite a bit. For those who have had issues, how frequent of an occurrence is it?

I'm currently trying to sell my 70-200 2.8L IS II. Hope I do before this drops, because for those who own R bodies, I think it'll make an impact! I think it weighing so little is a huge selling point even if the IQ is basically the same as the EF version III.

What I saw was two photos of the same girl. 1 with each lens. I don't know why Canon would simulate the difference in bokeh. They have the lenses. Look at the difference in the position of the left ear ring in relation to her head. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/...RF-85mm-F12-L-USM-vs-the-RF-86mm-F12-L-USM-DS
ok your right it might not be simulated and they are two different photos. I do find it strange they just put one photo out many months ago and thats all.

Wow! You're selling your EF 70-200 IS II; that really shows commitment to the new R mount!
I'm not that bold; I have the EOS R, the 5D Mark IV and the 1DX and also the same lens, EF 70-200 IS II but I don't have the guts to sell it...:)
