The RP will be out in a few days, but some San Francisco Bay Area shooters were able to take production RP's out on the street yesterday.

What better way to start this thread with a pair of RP shooters? Shot with the Canon RP and the RF-35 f/1.8 lens.

And your thoughts on this body? Does it seem Rebel cheap? Those new lenses are fantastic.

Chet, it does not feel cheap at all. It's solid and well built like the 5D series, just smaller. After the "R" was out and I first heard that the next Canon mirrorless body would be a smaller less expensive version, my reaction was rather negative. I've changed my view. The RF-35 that I was shooting is their lowest cost RF lens, but it felt solid and anything but cheap.

The RF 50 is drool worthy. Makes my 50L look like a Nifty Fifty. ;-)a

If you have larger hands you will want the definitely want the Canon Extension Grip.

The EVF is decent and the focus peaking is excellent especially for Manual Focus shooters. Getting the hang of using the touch screen in lieu of a joystick to move the AF point was a challenge at first, but I adapted.

The flip-out touch screen is great. The demo of the Macro Focus Stacking feature was impressive. No macro rail required, although you do have to use Canon's DPP software to stack the images.

For $1300 with the free EF-R adapter and the Extension Grip, what's not to like?

There may be a pattern,

First the "R" with a modified 5DMark IV sensor.

Then the "RP" with a modified 6DII sensor.

The Canon rep made a point about tooling costs and savings by using modified existing sensors, so...In the future the "R-Pro" (?) with a modified 5Ds sensor?

Sounds good to me, but what do I know? :-)

My lasting impression of the RP is that it is a well built camera that is fun to shoot. With the RF-35 lens, I'm certain it will be popular with the street shooters.

The one thing that made me angry about this post is the (free) EF to R adaptor comment.. Damn you Canon, DAMN YOU!!!!vmad I could have put that 100 beans towards the R's grip.... Bastids:-x

Congrats on the new camera:-)

The nice images in the OP and your comments about the build are basically what I expected after watching Jaren Polin's review.

Regarding the future, and owning the 5DS, resolution that high would not streamline the more important things the average buyer would want, like 2 cards, more frames per second, etc. In fact, very little need change for a pro version. That's probably why I see the simplicity of the EOS RP being a good start. Even though it's minus several features some people squabble about, for good photography its ready right out the gate.

I think Polin may have covered it already, but the feedback I find most valuable, is does this EOS RP function with adapted EF glass as superbly as the first EOS R. Did you have a chance to adapt much EF glass, and how did that work for you.

I took my 50L along to compare it to the RF-50, but unfortunately the RF-50 was in high demand and I didn't get a chance to compare it. I did shoot my 50L adapted on the RP and it performed very well. I didn't try any other adapted EF lenses.

The photographer in the first image used an adapted EF 24-70 and he said it worked well for him.

I was going to pre-order then decided not to...then I changed my mind again and ordered it Wed. Showed up today and just playing with the handling so far, I am impressed. I have used more than a few mirroless cameras, I mainly use Oly's now but I have been a Canon DSLR shooter since the mid 2000's.

So far this is a nice little package and pretty much the perfect size. Once I find something worth shooting I will post some images.

Guy in the camera store knocked me down and and severely twisted my arm. Or maybe took the camera out of the box and let me play around with it. I don't remember exactly, but I seem to have one now.

Picked mine up on Friday and it feels solid. Very rigid.

Was able to see one at Best Buy when I went in to buy something else. With the adapter & 24 pancake it was very small & light. The Canon rep was there & demonstrated the focus peaking and also showed how to set up the focus bracketing (images can then be stacked in DPP or using other software). He also demonstrated moving the focus point w/ your thumb while looking through the viewfinder. Fairly impressive.

Not bad at ISO 12800 and edited a little. No raw support yet is a drag for sure, I hope ACR gets updated quickly.
