That looks like it will be pretty amazing and pricey

Looks like an advancement in Tech. However, it also looks like the R series is getting bigger and bulkier. I guess I understand why this has to be due to more tech and what looks like a larger battery compartment. However, one thing I like about my R5 is the relatively compact, light weight system. RE cost, it does seem like the new R3 and the long primes will not be cheap. I assume it will be a big stretch for serious armatures.

It looks like a camera that I'll enjoy owning in about 5 or 6 years when people are dumping their gently used ones for 1/4 the price of the new R3 Mark2.

I read that the cost will be between 3900.00 up to 6500.00. The following is from dpreview on the camera. Also maybe a R1 in the future?

A lot of people loved eye control AF in the EOS 3 but it was also pretty flawed. 25 years since the EOS 3 should make the new version of this work pretty well I would think.

Looks like exciting times for all. What also might interest Canon users are the super tele's too. The 600 F4 RF compares favourably in weight and length to the Sony 600 F4. (3,090kgs and length of 472mm and min focus of 4.2m v Sony 3,040kgs, and 449mm with 4.5m min' focus distance.
Make your life spectacular!

I didn't double check your numbers but if they are what you wrote, that makes the Sony both slightly smaller and slightly lighter ;)  the big thing about the Sony though is that the weight is concentrated towards the camera end of the lens making it much easier to cary and hold due to the shorter lever arm.   In any case, I started a thread on the new lenses separate from this one so discussing the lenses there is probably best while keeping this thread to the camera body.  :)
