something tells me that some where there is one Lexus executive who worked on this es reading this forum and biting his nails thinking that we wont discus this issue so that they have a way of "screwing" us over when in 2 years they do a face left for the es and add the LEDs after we buy this one and price of this model drop signifigatly in the 2nd hand market

I was also very surprised to see that the new ES and Camry being otherwise stellar and technologically advanced models over their predecessors do not feature LED tails. Now the Camry Hybrid does have LED tails, go figure.
Has anyone switched over their stock bulbs to LED?
Also, do you need a new flasher relay (to account for fast flash)?
As stated above the third brake light in the center is already LED. The brake lights on the left and right are powered by 7443 bulbs and are plenty bright. I've ordered some cheap LED lights from eBay and their brightness is less than the stock halogen 7443 bulbs. I did notice any error for the short duration they were installed.
If you are referring to the rear taillight turn signals, then yes you would need flasher relays to prevent hyper-flashing.
