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.Read the lab-test of Canon EOS RP sensor at DxOMark.com

The latest Canon EOS RP and Canon EOS R firmware updates brought significant improvements in autofocus performance.
We featured an iPhone 11 vs Fujifilm GFX 100 comparison and an iPhone 11 vs Canon EOS 5D Mark IV comparison. Now it’s time for a Google Pixel 4 review of this kind, and it’s the Canon EOS RP to be the reference.
In the 11 minutes video below Denae & Andrew compare the Google Pixel 4 Night Sight mode with the Canon EOS RP for handheld night photography. An inexpensive Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS lens was used on the EOS RP
I guess this is not the last Google Pixel 4 review of this kind (or iPhone 11 review of this kind, for that matter). I really wonder if in three years there will be someone left, who is not a professional photographer, to buy a DSLR or a mirrorless camera.
What’s the point in buying a camera when smartphones are more powerful with each generation, feature telephoto and wide angle lenses, and computational photography delivers more and more magic?[via PetaPixel]
