RF L 200mm f/2.8 IS (I have never used a 70-200 at anything but 200)
RF L 400mm f/4 DO IS
RF L 500mm f/5.0 or f/5.6 DO IS
RF L 600mm f/5.6 DO IS
RF L 800mm f/8 DO IS

And for kicks, the R6 to get the R5 body instead of it being hampered with 6 series weather sealing.

RF 16-35 f/4 L, just like everyone else
RF 28-300 L because the RF 24-240 Canon already released is larger and not any sharper than my Tamron EF 28-300, the utility of which is undeniable

28 f1.4 is my dream lens at the moment. But as long as Canon makes RF glass big, I will be satisfied with 28 f1.8/2 with similar to RF 35 f1.8 size or smaller.

For longer option I want 100 f2 since 85 becomes a little boring, but I only want a slight change.

I'm ok for now.
15-35 rf 2.8
35 rf 1.8
50 rf 1.2
85 rf 1.2
70-200 rf 2.8

However, what I REALLY want is the ability to rock 35 1.4 and 85 1.2 on two bodies, without adaptors.
so my kit would be
15-35 rf 2.8 UWA

35 rf 1.4 or 1.2 which would be too big, so 1.4 is fine.
85 rf 1.2
^these two would be my typical pro pairing for weddings and such.

50 rf 1.8
^I don't need a 50 1.2, and I really want the 35/85 pro pairing.
so when the 35 1.4 RF comes out. I would sell my RF50 and RF35f1.8 and get a RF50F1.8 for my "one lens" day for casual/street/family.

70-200 rf 2.8
for sport/reach

So we need a 35 1.4 RF or 1.2, which is obvious. They really need to fill out the pro lineup of 24/35/50/85/135, so 24/35/135 please!

And then we need to address the masses.
The masses want their 1.8's
we need 24/50/85
so I would say they should give us all of those. They will probably do 24 first.
without the 1.8's, sony is really winning the size/weight/affordability contest.
their 85 1.8 FE is amazing, it's small, it's light, and it's $450! the nikkor 85 1.8 S is great too. But it's a bit larger and more pricey than the sony.

Cheers!

Lots of likes to this. But both the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 and the Sony 200-600mm f/6.3 are considered to be on the heavy side, and 200-600mm f/5.6 will be heavier still. Not a turn off for some but it will be for many. Canon knew what it is doing by making a lightweight 100-700mm as did Nikon with its 500mm f/5.6. There are just so many who want a lightweight lens they can easily carry and hold.
Hey, I want the Canon 100-700 you mention. Where can I get that bad boy? The current RF 100-500 is just a bit slow on the long end at 7.1 and put a 1.4x TC on it and you are at a whopping f/10. That is pretty limiting unless the light is really good. I would love to see a RF 200-600 5.6.
