Kit lens

The 24-105mm F4 L IS is a lovely option for the Canon EOS RP, but it's big and adds significantly to the cost. The Nikon has the smallest kit zoom of the three.

Another potential advantage for the Z5 is the availability of a kit zoom designed specifically for an entry-level audience. We've not had a chance to put it through its paces yet but a very compact, retractable, 24-50mm F4.0-6.3 zoom is a really handy companion to this camera. It's unstabilized but the body has 5-axis stabilization to make up for it. There's also a rather less-compact 24-200mm F4.0-6.3 zoom if you're after a do-everything lens.

The Canon also offers a do-everything zoom in the shape of the RF 24-240mm F4.0-6.3, but there aren't any small 'kit' zooms to pair with the RP's smaller body: the RF 24-105 F4.0-7.1 is more versatile than the Nikon zoom but its size, while not unreasonable, it not nearly so slight. The Sony, belying its more enthusiast roots, makes fewer concessions to portability and is often kitted with the 28-70mm F3.5-5.6. It has a slightly brighter aperture range than the others but it bigger and doesn't go as wide. It's not exactly blessed with the best build quality.
