There is a review here: https://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/canon-eos-rp-review
The Canon EOS RP is among the smallest and lightest full-frame cameras on the market, and is the least expensive full-frame camera at launch, ever. And though its specifications aren't going to set the world on fire, the RP is a likable little camera with solid JPEG image quality that will be a fine photographic companion for casual users and those already within the Canon ecosystem looking for a compact second body.
[Key specifications:]

26.2MP Dual Pixel CMOS sensor
4K/24p (from 1.7x crop region)
4 fps continuous shooting with continuous AF (5 without)
Pupil detection AF in continous/Servo AF mode
AF rated to -5EV (with an F1.2 lens)
Digic 8 processor
2.36M dot OLED viewfinder
Fully-articulated 1.04M dot touchscreen
Twin command dials
CIPA rated to 250 shots per charge

Get the EF adapter and you have endless choices of low cost EF lenses out there, new and used. The Canon EF adapter on Amazon is also a bargain:

After 12% Shopback, it is $135.40
Reviews have claimed that the EF lenses work even better on the R cameras than on the cameras they were originally designed for.

    It might be the cheapest but the new RF lenses are quite expensive (over $1600 for a zoom) so unless you already have canon EF lenses and then once you factor the cost of the EF adapter you are now around $2k which is around the price of the Sony A7 III which is a much better spec'd full frame camera.

    •  

      You still have to factor in the lenses though. Although A7III may have better specs, if you have EF lenses already, this would be a good option.

    •  

      And Sony lenses are generally a fair bit dearer than Canon lenses. Anyone who buys an R or RP is almost guaranteed to buy an adapter, and there are plenty of cheaper EF lenses available.

      •  

        I think this is a bit of a myth, maybe if you buy second hand lenses.
        I don't think you can use ef-m lenses on the r & rp so that rules out a lot of the cheap canon glass and the ef and ef-s cost the same or more than Sony lenses.
        the only plus would be a larger range of ef lenses (but they can be pricey)

          I do own both Sony A7 II and Canon EOS R. I have purchased lenses for both, new and used. I'd find that there are a larger number of EF lenses to choose from, and a lot more on the second hand market for any kind of budget. It is easier to find the Canon lenses I want at the price that suits my wallet than the A7. Just saying as it is, to inform people on a budget who are interested in full frame.

            @OzTom: Yes I think Canon has a large portion of the market (ease of finding the right lens + used market).
            They are aware of this, therefore are quite confident in releasing new cameras later then the rest which are slightly inferior in certain specification to the rest of the market.

    •  

      With $2K mark you get Sony with No lenses

    •  

      The EF adapter is only ~136 from Amazon after Shopback 12% discount. With Shopback/Cashrewards and Canon rebate, all up under 1700 for both camera and adapter.

    If you're paying >$1,600, why are you limiting yourself so much with such a gimped body and battery life?

    It'd be better to just go all-in for a fuji xt-2 or xt-3 as their lens lineup absolutely kills this. It's apsc, but unless you're shooting at f/1.4 on full-frame you don't really, really notice that difference

    •  

      this. to be competitive with established mirrorless lines, this body needs to be priced much lower, and it will be eventually

  •  

    If I'm buying a full frame, I'm not gonna get one that doesn't even have a log profile or good 4k autofocus and not even external 10bit output.

    And neither of them even have 120fps 1080p sigh, buying into Canon for video was such a dumb mistake. I should be excited by this deal :(

    •  

      Canon and video is a sad story, Canon is a photo camera that tries to also shoot video, and Sony is the other way around. the difference is that Sony managed to do great in photography department, and Canon never moved much ahead in video.

      •  

        Sad thing is I'm sure they could easily have these features on the camera, they just keep them off. The m50 has great video features for its price point… RP is fullframe and 3x the price, come on!

        •  

          I think they are doing the wrong thing altogether. they would have stirred much more excitement if they just released original 5d classic just the way it was, without changing a thing (maybe adding a couple of absolutely essential features like lens profiles and auto ISO in every shooting mode, maybe a couple more to keep it simple, maybe bump the sensor up to 16mp), and position that as the true entry level full frame camera. that would be a huge success.

          yes they would make less on each unit, but imagine how many people they would have attracted onto the EOS-EF system from other systems who would like to try full frame camera on a budget. EF lens lineup is already impressive and is much cheaper than any Sony or Fujifilm counterpart.
