EF 17-40/4 L US, EF 16-35mm/2.8 L USM II or Samyang AF14/2.8 on EOS R?

I want to complement my R equipment. I have the EOS R and may follow. I need sometimes more than 24mm and bokeh isn't an issue.

 

The Samyang AF14/2.8 may be a good option. But I can't mount a filter. I photograph often in harsh conditions, e.g. constructions aereas.

 

My second thought: can the EF 17-40/4 L US or EF 16-35mm/2.8 L USM II image quality keep up to the R/R5?

 

My last considaration: the EF 17-40/4 L US is cheaper than the EF 16-35mm/2.8 L USM II and maybe a cheap substitute until another options ar available. I hope that Sigma or Tamron launch a soon a similar lens. Or Canon comes with somethng affordable in the range of 15 to 18mm.

You have an RF mount body.  You should only consider RF mount lenses, especially if you are considering an R5.

This only makes sense.  And, stick with Canon unless there is no Canon to consider.

The typically reliable Canon Rumors has recently stated, in no uncertain terms, that Sigma will begin making RF mount lenses in 2021. Hope it's true.

I bought the 16-35 EF L 4.0 is right before buying an R6 (R5 on its way). Great lens at a great price, and works excellently with the R6 and Canon adapter.
