The 17-55 will work with the EF-RF adaptors (previously you couldn't use EF-S lenses on Canon full frame lenses because there is a mechanical stop that prevents it - although they work fine on non-Canon EF mounts like the RED canon mounts.)
    Yeah that lens would be a nice fit, good size aswell. my only concern would being able to adjust aperture on the komodo though... or do you think it would be able? autofocus isn't essential

    Just decide between either having a RF to EF adapter with internal ND or the benefit of the faster aperture on the RF 24-70. A RF to EF adapter that's active should transfer aperture and autofocus just like on the Canon R.

    What you have to consider here, is future proofing and the future of RF. I personally believe that one of the most valuable parts of the Komodo is the RF Mount as it can be used with adapters to almost any lens mount there is. I really believe that because of this you should really look into RF only glass. Id strongly recommend the 24-105 f4 RF since it is super light and has a great range without sacrificing sharpness and detail. But if you need a prime killing zoom and dont really mind weight or a huge lens diameter (compared to other photo lenses) then look no further then the 28-70 f2! Its great and is absolutely one of if not my favorite lens to use on my eos r right now
