What is the connection between IQ and Stabilization? IS is a huge advantage even at shorter focal lengths.I think the typical user of these lenses are those that demand the highest IQ over stabilization. And if a large part of that is portraiture/controlled lighting scenarios, IS is not a big advantage at shorter focal lengths. These f/1.2 lenses will not be small nor light. I can't see many people carrying a bagful of f/1.2 lenses over a single f/2.8 zoom. I can see people carrying smaller f/2 primes for that purpose, so those would probably be better candidates for IS.
My gut instinct is that Canon will eventually release 1.4 versions as well, but time will tell. Definitely looking forward to a 24mm and 35 mm f1.2 L lenses.
Well, yes we want to buy them but finding stock is hard for love nor money! Trying to find a RF24-105mm/4 in Australia is basically impossible the moment. Anecdotal evidence from the R5 Shooters FB page shows that this is a common problem in multiple countries.Well yes, I think I do. I don't see how bargain priced R bodies, crop R bodies, or 'consumer' f1.8 lenses (or even crazy sized and priced f1.2 primes) increases the likelihood or speed of release of more 'modest' and practical f1.4 L's.
As far as I can see everything else is a distraction from the lenses many of us here actually want to buy. And whilst I know we are not particularly representative of the market in general I believe we are representative of the R5/6 market, which seems to be where Canon is making their money in the MILC space.
two each, from both you and your children. Canon Australia pricing themselves out of the market already. I can often get Sony lenses half the price of RF glass since they have lower RRP and much better sales. If I get the R3 I will still stick to mostly EF glass. Only lenses that I might consider are the new 100mm macro and a 500 f/4.Will the price for them all be one kidney or two?

I don't know, I don't like that we always have to choose between 1kg 3000$ lenses or plastic non weather sealed and slow AF F1.8-2 lenses."I don't need an oversized 1.2 lens, just give me 1.4" in 3...2...1...
In all seriousness, though, it would make sense. 1.8/2.0 consumer-grade lenses and 1.2 pro-grade lenses. That's plenty.
Yes, I don't like this too. That was my main reason to struggle first. I like the compact and "stable" form of the EF 35 IS.And the 1.8 buzzes in and out while trying to focus constantly--hanging from your shoulder. An internal focus will keep focusing too, but without all the drama.
Are you sure about that? I believe Canon has said RF lens can have a relatively large image circle (linked to the fact that the EF and RF lens mounts have the same diameter but RF has a shorter flange distance), and a larger image circle allows the IBIS to be more effective because the sensor can be allowed to move further. I don't believe it has anything to do with the maximum aperture of the lens though. (Well, wide aperture lenses tend to be relatively large and expensive anyway so it may be that from a practical perspective Canon is generally willing to go to more trouble and expense to design a lens with a larger image circle for those sorts of lenses, but that is a separate issue.)
