Here is a Canon EOS RP review for wildlife photographers.
Brent Hall discusses how the entry-level Canon EOS RP performs from the point of view of the wildlife photographer, and he tells how to overcome the EOS RP limitations.
In this […] video, I go over my thoughts on the Canon EOS RP for wildlife and birding photography. I talk about the pros and the cons, how I deal with the lack of features, and give you some tips on how to set it up and wildlife photography in general.
DxOMark lab-tested and posted a Canon EOS RP Review. The EOS 6D Mark II heritage does reflect on the score.
The Canon EOS RP sensor scored 85 points, and is clearly behind he competition, as you can see in the image below.
In their conclusion they write:
As the first and only entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera currently available, the Canon EOS RP provides an easier entry into the full-frame mirrorless market than the EOS R from a pricing point of view. However, it might be too much to expect the RP sensor to match the current leading-edge sensor performance in the considerably more expensive mid-range mirrorless models. At the moment, those wanting better sensor performance from a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera, particularly with regard to dynamic range, will have to spend considerably more on the Canon EOS R.
This said, noise levels and color accuracy are very good and not that far behind the sensors in the Nikon Z 6 and Sony A7 III. These traits, combined with its inherent portability and generally good mix of features and ergonomics, make the RP an attractive option for travel, street, and yes, even landscape photographers.

Given that the EOS R sells for around $1000 more than the EOS RP, what’s the difference? Do you need the more powerful and expensive model or is the entry-level one good enough for you? Find out in the Canon EOS R vs RP video below.
