As we all know that Canon EOS RP uses the same sensor as of Canon 6D Mark II camera. So, expecting a better dynamic range from Canon 6D Mark II as we have in Sony A7 II isn’t fair.

What actually improved from Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 II ?  By the Introduction of new DIGIC 8 image processor the Canon also implemented new noise processing algorithms with the camera. So, the noise of the camera is bit more controlled compared to Canon 6D Mark II.

Exposure and more…

Exposure Control  
Canon EOS RP Sony A7 II
ISO Sensitivity Auto, 100 to 40000 (Extended Mode:50 to 102400) 100 to 25600 (Extended Mode:50 to 25600)
Shutter 30 to 1/4000 Second , Bulb Mode Type: Electronic & Mechanical

Exposure Modes Modes: Aperture Priority, Manual, Program, Shutter Priority
Metering Range: EV -3.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -3 EV to +3 EV (in 1/3, 1/2 EV Steps)
Modes: Aperture Priority, Auto, Manual, Programmed Auto, Scene Selection, Shutter Priority, Sweep Panorama
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 5 fps at 24 MP for up to 50 Frames

As you can see Canon EOS RP features extended ISO range compared to  Sony A7 II Camera. Canon EOS RP features ISO range starting from 100-40,000 in standard Range and 50-102400 in Extended Range.

Whereas, Sony A7II camera features Standard ISO range from 100-25600 and you also have a option to push your ISO range to ISO 50.

In general more ISO range means better low-light performance. But with Sony A7 II camera you are also getting  5 axis  Image stabilization system. So, when you are shooting in low light environment  you can hit more lower shutter speed (upto 5 stop) when compared to Canon EOS RP camera.

One of the best thing is you don’t have to worry about a bit while using Prime lenses or third party lenses with your camera. Since, image stabilization will help you all the time despite of type of lenses you are using.

Canon EOS RP camera can record Videos in 4K whereas the Sony A7II camera limited to Full HD video recording mode only.

But Keep in Mind the Canon EOS RP Camera have some issues in 4K video recording mode

Limitations of Canon EOS RP in 4K Mode

  1. Canon EOS RP uses the APS-C Portion of the sensor, so you will be getting very limited dynamic range
  2. Canon EOS RP camera 4K video mode suffers from 1.6X Crop factor.
  3. Canon EOS RP camera doesn’t have DPAF support when you are recording 4K videos.

Limitation of Canon EOS RP camera in Full HD Video Mode

In Canon EOS RP camera is missing 24p frame option in Full HD and HD recording mode.

Sony A7 II Camera doesn’t miss any standard recording option in Full HD video mode.

At the same time Sony A7 II camera 24 MP BSI CMOS Video Dynamic range is better compared to Canon EOS RP 26MP CMOS camera.

8Bit output with S-Log2 whereas Canon EOS RP has 8bit output without C-log.

DPAF vs HYBRID – Auto Focus

Focus Control  
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Continuous Focus Continuous AF upto 3 FPS Continuous AF upto 5 FPS
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 117
Contrast Detection: 25

Canon clearly have a upper hand in the specs sheet while mentioning their EOS RP camera carry have more than 4K AF area zones or segments.

So, it’s very clear that Canon will have more AF screen coverage .

Fastest Camera – Canon EOS RP or Sony A7 II ?

Canon EOS RP camera fails to give Continuous AF support at 5FPS more, Continuous AF starts from 3 FPS and Subject tracking goes down upto 2.6 FPS.

Sony A7 II camera features Continuous shooting speed 5 FPS full time AF support and very accurate Eye AF support while recording videos.

Which one has better Display ?

Viewfinder/Display  
Viewfinder Type Electronic Electronic

Screen Coverage 100% 100%

Canon EOS RP camera features better touch screen and viewfinder, compared to Sony A7II camera.

Other Features

Sony A7 II camera features better battery life (100+ shots),  You will be also getting Environmental sealing  with Sony A7 II camera. No weather sealing in Canon EOS RP.

Comparatively if we talk about list of lenses available, then we don’t have more than 10 lenses for Canon EOS RF Mount camera at the time I am writing this post. Whereas, Sony A7II camera have 100+ lenses out there specifically made for Sony FE Mount cameras.

Verdict:

For Hybrid Shooters we have no option other than Canon EOS RP, nature of display Canon EOS RP is more user friendly compared to Sony A7 II. For still shooters we recommend Sony A7 II camera, since the camera features better dynamic range, In-body 5 axis Image Stabilization system and better continuous drive.

Canon RP vs Canon 6D Mark II

 

 

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

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.

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.

Canon RP Press Release

FULL FRAME FOR THE MASSES! CANON INTRODUCES ITS SECOND FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS CAMERA – THE EOS RP

New Super-Compact and Ultra-Lightweight EOS RP is Ideal for Users Looking to Graduate to Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera at an Affordable Price

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 13, 2019 – Responding to the demand from amateur and advanced amateur photographers for an entry-level, full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the second camera in the EOS R lineup, the EOS RP. The EOS RP is designed for photographers looking to step up from Canon’s APS-C cameras: the EOS Rebel, EOS M and the EOS 80D, into the world of full-frame mirrorless photography. Weighing in at just 17.29 ounces, the EOS RP camera is lighter than a 500ml bottle of water and smaller than Canon’s popular APS-C DSLR camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i, coming in at approximately 5.0in (w) x 3.77in (h) x 2.36in (d). With optics at its core, the EOS RP takes full advantage of the complete line up of RF lenses and is compatible with the existing collection of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses with the use of one of three optional RF EOS-R Mount Adapters .

“As Canon continues to evolve its full-frame mirrorless cameras, our goal is that one day the EOS R line becomes as widely popular as our celebrated lineup of EOS DSLR cameras,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a company, we believe that in order for us to accomplish that goal, Canon needs to develop full-frame mirrorless cameras for every skill level of photographers and that starts with amateurs and advanced amateurs. This makes the EOS RP the perfect addition to the existing lineup.”

The new Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera features a 26.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that is powered by the company’s DIGIC 8 image processor, providing users with high-image quality, outstanding operation and functionality. The new Canon EOS RP features Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) with 4,779 manually selectable AF points and a wide AF coverage area of 88 percent horizontal and 100 percent vertical. With f/1.2 lenses, the camera astonishingly boasts AF sensitivity in low light in as little as Exposure Value (EV) -5. When using the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens with the EOS RP, the camera can focus in as little as 0.05 seconds with Dual Pixel CMOS AF . When using eye detection AF, the camera can automatically detect faces and focus on the eye of the subject. This feature is supported when the camera is set in either servo AF mode during continuous shooting and movie servo AF, as well as one-shot AF.

Like the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera that was announced in September 2018, the EOS RP is built around the same 54mm mount diameter and short-back focus. This allows for the use of one of three optional mount adapters for full compatibility with all existing EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E lenses. Through the use of the optional Drop-In Filter Mount Adapter or Control Ring Mount Adapter, these lenses, in fact, gain functionality.

For photographers looking to further expand their abilities and capture a wide variety of both still and video images, the EOS RP features Visual Guide mode. First introduced with the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D, this mode allows users to see on screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking settings can alter the image they are about to capture. This mode helps to guide photographers to capture more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look. For those looking to expand their imaginative options, the camera also features Creative Assist mode that allows photographers to use new and unique visual effects and adjustments when shooting, such as brightness, contrast, saturation, color tone, monochrome and background blur. In addition, the design, ergonomics, layout and ease-of-use of the camera are very similar to that of other Canon cameras consumers might already be familiar with.

Additional noteworthy features of the EOS RP camera include:

  • Built-in 0.39 inch, 2.36 million dot Electronic Viewfinder with Touch-and-Drag AF
  • Vari-Angle LCD touchscreen
  • 4K UHD 24P/Full HD 60p video recording with 4K time-lapse shooting and the ability to extract still images from 4K video recordings
  • ISO range of 100-25,600 that is expandable up to ISO of 102,400
  • Built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® technology
  • Mobile RAW workflow supported paired with Digital Photo Professional Express App

Availability and Pricing
The Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera is scheduled to be available in March 2019 for an estimated retail price of $1299.00 for the body only. It will also be sold as a body-and-lens kit with the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens for $2399.00*

Canon EOS RP Coming With 35mm F1.8 STM Kit Lens

According to latest rumors coming from trusted sources. Canon EOS RP coming as RF 35mm FF1.8 IS STM Macro Lens with the camera to make the overall package more affordable.

It’s look like Canon is not able to create affordable kit lens options of upcoming Canon EOS RP camera. And it look bit illogical if Canon pair-up the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM,  $1K+ kit lens with the camera. However, Canon EOS RP is still coming with 24-105mm Kit lens as option.

The RF 35mm F1.8 is a great lens if you want shoot in low-light condition, that includes indoor events and also a standard option for street shooting.
