Canon EOS RP specs leaked
#20
I'd like to say a few words here, basically because I am a lot more positive about this camera than most seem to be.

Although many seem to believe the sensor is the same as the one in the 6D Mk II, it is not. The 6D sensor stands at its basis, yes, but plenty was changed in order to make it work or work better with a shorter flange to sensor depth, and similarly, with regard to the AF elements built into the sensor. The microlenses on the sensor have been redeveloped to cater for shallower angles of incident light rays, and there is a better implementation of on-sensor AF. In my book that makes it virtually a new sensor, regardless of dynamic range etc.

This camera is marketed to those who start with FF, switching from APS-C, or otherwise. Considering its initial price point, it is about 45% cheaper than the original 5D and 5D II, which it essentially replaces (and the 6D / 6D II of course, which still sells at approx. 30% more). It comes with a free adapter, so you can continu to use your (FF) EF lenses, with all functionality intact, and a few more if you so prefer. Focusing is faster and has many more options than most of the predecessors had.

In addition there is a cashback on certain combo's, or a Canon shop bonus, in case you'd like to buy, e.g., a lens straight away.

In addition, it is smaller than a Canon entry level APS-C camera, which makes the transition from APS-C to FF easier as well, from a weight / size POV.

As to the EVF: I have used quite a few MFT cameras by now, the best ones having a similar EVF from a pixel POV, and IMO it is more than enough in a beginner's camera. Maybe not for sports, but then, it isn't marketed to the sports photog community. It is marketed as a cheap entry point into FF, at an IMO very good quality / price point level.

I reckon Canon has a winner on its hands with this camera, and I expect it to do very well indeed.

Kind regards, Wim
Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 1 zoom, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, extension tubes, an accessory plague, and an Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II and Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ...
