Garfield is back...

Even if I had an R, and I will get the high resolution model, I wouldn’t get the RF 10-24 I’d get the EF 11-24 and use it with adapters so I could filter it. Further, I see IBIS coming to the R so no need for IS. Not that I have ever hankered for IS in the 11-24 anyway. Bearing all this in mind I doubt if you will see any downward pressure on the EF 11-24, for sure I am keeping mine going forwards....I have yet to pull the trigger on the UWA such as the EF 11-24. I don't really need such a lens...but I want one. I was able to hold off, in part, because of the possibility of a UWA in the RF format...but also because of IS (lack of).
In part, that time has come (apparently).
There are several posts in this thread now...and not one mentions image stabilization. Am I the only one that likes acquiring museum/theme park/at home images of really really dark (static) scenes, at places were tripods etc just aren't practical? Image stabilization in these use cases is critical.
IBIS for the next R?
Or will the 10-24 itself have IS?
Finally, will the EF 11-24 now see downward pressure as far as price is concerned?
