Canon EOS RP vs EOS 6D Mark II: Which is right for you?
Canon EOS RP with EF 24mm F2.8 IS USM | ISO 100 |1/500sec | F7.1
Both cameras offer Wi-Fi and good JPEG image quality with pleasing color rendition right out of the box, a great combination for someone looking to share images on the fly. In-camera Raw processing is also offered by both cameras, making it easy to share photos from the road – no laptop required. GPS is offered in some form by both cameras (though we prefer the 6D II's in-camera implementation over the RP's use of smartphone location data) and selfie-takers can safely choose either camera as they both offer a screen that flips forward.
However, where battery life is concerned, the 6D II looks like the stronger option. There's no getting around it – the RP is a mirrorless camera that draws a lot of power for constant Live View use, so its 250 shot CIPA rating is dwarfed by the 6D II's rating of 1200 shots per charge. On the other hand, it's not much of a burden to carry a couple of spare batteries for the RP as they're smaller and lighter, and the camera supports USB charging where the 6D II doesn't. Tack on the fact that the 6D II is weather-sealed whereas the RP offers no official claim of weather resistance and the 6D II keeps looking better and better.
Things swing back in the RP's favor when you consider its incredibly compact size, even compared to the relatively light weight 6D II. But that advantage is somewhat reduced when you consider the RP's native lens selection – right now the RF 35mm F1.8 is the best native option to keep size down. Adding an adapter and a smaller lens like the 50mm F1.8 STM or 24mm F2.8 IS doesn't tack on too much extra bulk, but it's not nothing. The RP still wins on compactness, but unless you're happy shooting at 35mm until some more RF lenses come out, the camera's small size isn't as much of an advantage as it seems.
