I imagine the RF lens should perform better than it's EF equivalent but there are few you can compare at the moment. I'm not going to let go of my 500mm f4 any time soon!
I was shocked at the AF performance difference between the EF24-70 and the RF24-70 2.8 lenses. The speed difference and hit rate especially in challenging light is like night and day. We will be rewarded with a flood of large aperture RF telephotos in the coming year.
