More Preorder Options for EOS RP, and Comparison vs. EOS R


The Canon EOS RP has been extremely popular. A few more options have opened up for pre-ordering this body, which is expected to release in just under two weeks. All dealers are carrying the pre-order special of a free EF-EOS R mount adapter and an extension grip.

Trying to decide between the EOS R and the EOS RP? Here are some key differences between the two cameras:

Advantages of the EOS R

  • Better sensor. The EOS R features a 30.3mp sensor, where as the EOS RP features a 26.2mp sensor (apparently the same sensor re-used from the EOS 6D Mark II).
  • Faster burst shooting, faster shutter speed. The EOS R supports 8 fps shooting, vs 5 fps for the EOS RP. The EOS R also supports a max shutter speed of 1/8000 (vs. 1/4000 for the EOS RP).
  • Better AF sensitivity. Both feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF, but the EOS R can focus down to -6EV, where as the EOS RP can only support -5EV.
  • Body controls, LCD, and EVF. The EOS R has a larger EVF, higher resolution LCD, and a top LCD control panel (befitting its larger build).

Advantages of the EOS RP

  • Price. This is one of the biggest advantages of the EOS RP — at just $1299 (with a free adapter), compare with a street price of $2169 for the EOS R — a massive delta of $870. That’s nearly enough to pick up a RF 24-105mm F4 L IS lens!
  • Size and weight. It’s amazing how small the EOS RP is, with exterior dimensions of 132.5 x 85 x 70mm compared to the 135.8 x 98.3 x 84.4mm of the EOS R. It also weighs 140g lighter at 440g (vs. 580g of the EOS R).
