Jumping on Canon EOS RP vs R

5 months 3 weeks ago #636996 by Stacy Craig
Have you jumped on the new EOS RP?   Did you consider the R? 

I'm after a new body and of course I would be lying if I didn't say I was tempted with the price of the new RP over the R.  However putting aside price is there distance between the two cameras to make this a solid buy. 

What's funny is B&H has the EOS R photos showing for the RP  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1459282-REG/canon_eos_rp_mirrorless_digital.html/?ap=y&gclid=CjwKCAjw-OHkBRBkEiwAoOZqlyfTfP1t-p3oFyQewJI4FEuoaPF4mstq6DpHXFizuMZQ4k142mZ5CxoC4ToQAvD_BwE&lsft=BI%3A514&smp=Y

I'm bias towards the R, it's an awesome camera.  I was able to handle one before buying and honestly I was so sold.

I rather go with the R, it's closer to pro level, better specs, more goodies.

Canon 7D | 50mm f/1.2 | 17-40mm f/4 | 70-200mm f/2.8 | 320EX | 580EXII

For me the RP is mehh, the R is a pretty sweet camera.  Have you held one yet?  The ergonomics are incredible!

I’d be curious how the photos compared to one another. You see everybody griping about the video, how about the photos?

Probably because it's a 26 vs 30 MP comparison. That's not a distinguishing feature, in my book. They're going to use the same glass, so what's to compare?

Generally, you need about 50% more/less MP's to see a difference.

There are photographs everywhere. It is the call of photographers to see and capture those images.

Is that really where it starts?  I'm guessing you are referring to human eye.  It's funny because I have wondered that in the past.  At what point will it become clear to the human eye that there is a loss or gain in MP. 

Interesting, good post thank you.

Yep ... all else being equal, about 50% in MPs is when the human eye starts seeing a difference. I always look for significance.  Will 10fps make a significant difference in my action photos than 8fps ... will F/1.4 make a difference over F/1.8 ... et cetera.

I'm about 90% sure the R is going to be the winner for me.  Unless Canon drops the rumored Pro.

What are you planning to do with this new camera body?  I don't think that question has been asked here yet.  I would evaluate what your intentions are with this new camera body, then decide.  The EOS R is clearly the winner for the more serious uses, where the EOS RP doesn't shine as much.
