I have a 7Dii and got the R myself.One of the things that sold me was how well it felt in my hands have large hands myself. I'm in my 60s.What i did was go to a best buy or camera store and get it in your hands and the the controls and see if they will mount a EF lens on it for you to get the feel of it. Then go home and sleep on it.Go back and try it again to make sure.I got the 24-105 and love it.And even with the EF 70-200 mkII it still a pleasure to shoot and carry around.Hope i helped some.:)

With the EOS R5 on the close horizon, there may be a few gently used "R's" coming on the used market. Just food for thought . . .

Meh. I don't think the R is such a significant upgrade on the RP. Dynamic range might be better but not by much; same for resolution and frames per second, if you need those. Otherwise they're virtually the same camera, with the R being bigger, bulkier and heavier, and with worse design to boot and, as far as I can recall, no additional wheels, just an annoying looking tab. Not worth the hassle of going through the motion of selling my own RP on the used market, at least not for that reason, and not while I'm still deciding which EF/EF-S lens to sell next.

Anyone on here have a 7D or 7Dii that went to EOS R? I'd like to make the jump to mirrorless. The RP has plenty of resolution for me, and will handle darker settings better. I know it's a little slower with burst.. but outside of that I'm curious... i have large hands. Is it easy to manage or will it feel small? I'm just curious if someone has any recommendations? I'd like to downsize to the RP with 24-105 and maybe a longer 70-200 or something along those lines. Its video capabilities are more than fine as I don't use it for video.

I'd be grateful for any advice? Also.. it focuses quickly, right? I do have two boys. :)

Don’t know where you are in your reflection, but going from the 70D and 6D to the RP, it feels like you lose out on dynamic range. Otherwise, it’s definitely better in low light and for focusing in many situations.

Currently shoot m43 with a panasonic g9, would this camera be a big improvement over it? We primarily do outdoor family portraits. To start id probably go with a 24-70 f2.8 and add the 135L later on. Currently are most used lenses are a 12-40 f2.8 and a 56 1.4.

I see that there was a firmware update for the R, was this also for the RP?

If it's the Eye AF firmware update, then yes it was also for the RP, though it might not have the same version number.

I'm using my RP for video as I work from home, connecting the camera to my computer using the USB C connector. Unfortunately, the charge on the battery runs down rather quickly and, although I have a spare battery, the work I do makes it very awkward to change the battery easily.

Had anyone found an adaptor that will allow me to connect the USB C to a PD (Power Delivery) power supply at the same time as running data from the camera via the USB?

The software that allows me to control cameras and do such things as picture-in-picture to video conferencing software requires that the video feeds come via USB or I would use the WiFi capability for the video and then I would be able to power the camera using PD and the camera's USB C socket.
