EOS RP versus 6D Mark II - which one is right for you?
DPReview created an article today about the EOS RP versus the 6D Mark II, comparing the features of each camera and trying to help you decide which camera is better for you.
The 6D Mark II and the EOS RP share a lot of core fundamentals, they both use the same sensor and are targeted at entry level full frame users. As a sign of the times, the EOS RP came in at $700 lower for a launch price than the 6D Mark II, and is still less expensive than the 6D Mark II, even though the 6D Mark II is nearly 2 years old.
The Canon EOS RP and 6D Mark II share much of the same DNA when it comes to image quality, but their feature sets and implementations are still quite different. The 6D II provides the familiar comforts of a DSLR: robust battery life, a comfortable grip and plentiful lens options.
The RP brings many of the trappings of a modern mirrorless camera, including (decent) 4K video and use of Canon's very good Dual Pixel AF system with the built-in viewfinder. But as it often does, the choice may come down to the lenses. It's very early days for the RF mount, and the first lenses available for it are some real stunners, but they don't seem particularly well matched the RP's price point and target audience unless you really love shooting 35mm.
