The wrap-up

Hopefully, it's apparent by now that the EOS RP, despite its shortcomings, is really a capable little camera in the right hands and for the right uses (or even in capable hands for less-suitable uses). As we stated in our full review, it's not a camera that really gets the blood pumping based on its specifications. There are no new 'killer features,' no technical sensor wizardry, and it has some definite shortcomings, like its video feature set and battery life.

Despite all of this, the RP is mostly a winner for us. It's affordable, offers great JPEGs, and with the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro – admittedly, the only affordable RF-mount lens at this time – it's compact and fun to use. And though it's not the most elegant of solutions, get the RP with the adapter and you'll have access to an incredible variety of 'cheap and cheerful' older EF-mount glass until the RF system fills out a bit more. For now, if you're in the market for an affordable full-frame camera, the RP seems especially well-suited to travel photography and documenting family and moments.

If you own or are looking into an EOS RP, let us know in the comments what types of photography you're into and how the camera is working for you.
