I am looking at the Canon R5 with my existing EF Canon lenses + adapter. I may not want to sell all my EF lenses and buy the new RF ones. If you have the camera and you are using it with the adapter and EF lenses, is there any difference compared to the RF lenses... Any AF delay or drawback? I get it. Canon wants us to buy the new RF lens lineup but I am wondering whether I can use my old lenses?

Depending on the lenses, they may not allow for the full 20fps, and the IBIS may not be as effective.

As above, the AF will be as good as or maybe better than you're used to - but the R5 with RF lenses would probably be 'better'.

I'm sure some EF-S lenses won't work with the 20fps but I think all adapted EF lenses do, I may be wrong though.

Here’s a post from the R thread with the details.
