Here are my quick thoughts on the new Canon EOS RP. At the moment I don’t have any native RF lenses, I’m just using my various EF lenses with the free adapter. Thus far the image quality is pretty much like every other Canon I’ve had or used in the past 10+ years. I personally prefer my Nikon gear for the power in the raw files, but I’ve also enjoyed using Canon’s system for its ease and different rendering.
Below are pictures I’ve shot randomly around town. The best part about the camera is that it is super small and light, and actually fun to use. It’s good not to be so serious with cameras, regardless of what the crazy internet has to say about gear that we would have killed for 15 years ago. These jpegs are processed from the raw files in Canon’s DPP 4.10. This camera has a pretty good built in Lens Correction feature. It doesn’t magically 100% help all the older 1.4L lenses and their purple fringing in high contrast daylight, but I’ve learned to not shoot wide open all the time on those lenses. Nikon lenses you can get away with shooting f/1.4 but Canon lenses you really have to stop down. Luckily f/2.8-4 still looks good in terms of background and subject separation blur.
More photos to come! Spring down in Atlanta has been pretty but cold and rainy. I’ve yet to try the RP with adapted Nikon lenses and other oddball combos. Thus far it is a fine camera, good enough for many situations, regardless of all the bellyaching from all the internet experts. 😉
Update, More photos!
