Canon 6D mark II vs the new Canon EOS RP. The canon EOS RP will cost you $200 less and features a bit better core specs than the existing Canon 6D Mark II camera. From the design its very clear that newly announced EOS RP camera features a very ultra compact design compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

As we know that the sensor of both the camera excatly same, so it’s bit hard to find out the difference between the  specs sheet. As we know that Canon 6D Mark II camera is a DSLR, so it uses additional Phase AF Module inside the camera. The Phase AF module features 45 Point AF system. And EOS RP doesn’t carry any external Phase AD module like the 6D Mark II.

Otherwise, Both camera features same DPAF sensor. So, AF speed will remain almost same, however AF speed also depend upon type of image processor, nature of mount and type of lenses used. Viewfinder isn’t that good as we have seen inside Canon 6D Mark II. EOS R viewfinder is also just awesome, but to reduce development cost Canon sacrificed the quality of the viewfinder.

Auto-focus

Focus Control  
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Focus Mode Continuous-Servo AF (C), Single-servo AF (S) Automatic (A), Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M), Single-servo AF (S)
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 45 (45 Cross-Type)

Don’t get into the trouble of counting AF points, both camera features same sensor. You will be getting Same AF performance in both the camera. However, the EOS RP camera loses out 45 point Phase AF module of Canon 6D Mark II DSLR due to the nature of its construction.

Exposure  Control

ISO Sensitivity Auto, 100 to 40000 (Extended Mode:50 to 102400) Auto, 100 to 40000 (Extended Mode:50 to 102400)

Metering Method Center-Weighted Average Metering, Evaluative Metering, Partial Metering, Spot Metering Center-Weighted Average Metering, Evaluative Metering, Partial Metering, Spot Metering
Exposure Modes Metering Range: EV -3.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -3 EV to +3 EV (in 1/3, 1/2 EV Steps)
Metering Range: EV 1.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -5 EV to +5 EV (in 1/3 or 1/2 EV Steps)
Buffer/Continuous Shooting Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for Unlimited Frames in JPEG Format
Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for up to 50 Frames in Raw Format
Up to 6.5 fps at 26.2 MP
Up to 3 fps at 26.2 MP

Metering range is improved in new Canon RP camera, but at the same time the the exposure Compensation range is limited and not as good as Canon 6D Mark II.

Even after the introduction of Digic 8 image processor the continuous AF speed of the Canon EOS RP camera is slower compared to Canon 6D Mark II DSLR.

Good news, Canon EOS RP shoots 4K video with contrast based AF, yep DPAF is restricted to Full HD only. You will be getting 1.6X Crop in 4K and no 24p option available in Full HD or HD Mode.

Canon 6D Mark II on the other side remains limited to Full HD video recording mode.

 Conclusion

Canon EOS RP doesn’t have any eye catching feature, if you already own Canon 6D Mark II camera, there is no need to upgrade and if you are planning to buy, then go with Canon EOS RP.

    Camera images are not to scale, flange diameter of the Canon R is bigger than that of the Canon EOS, in the provided image is seen as smaller.

  • Odin

    6DII also has DPAF, so not sure why that’s not in the table. Is the DPAF any faster in the EOS R or RP?
