Canon has been quick at introducing another camera for its new mirrorless EOS R system. The first one introduced is the EOS R, and this new one, the Canon EOS RP, is more of an entry level camera. Let’s see how this new one compares, spec-wise, against the EOS R:

Here’s a good in-field review of the RP from DPReview:
Conclusion / Opinions
It looks like while, yes, the Canon EOS RP is a hell of a lot cheaper than the EOS R, it leaves some to be desired and falls short on some levels for a modern mirrorless full-frame camera. The main points of contention are the short battery life as well as the lower sensor performance for dynamic range and low light capabilities.
It’s certainly a great and inexpensive full-frame option to consider if you’re just getting into photography or you’re a hobbyist, but otherwise if you’re planning on doing any serious photography or videography, the EOS R seems like a much better investment.
