Landscapes

Canon EOS RP with EF 24mm F2.8 IS USM | ISO 100 | 1/400sec | F7.1

We can't say that the either the 6D II or the RP would be among our top recommendations for landscape shooters. Other options with more resolution and dynamic range will likely suit serious landscape photographers better. If that's not your sole priority, both of these cameras would serve the casual landscape shooter just fine on travels or hikes, and their image quality will be roughly the same.

The 6D II's robust battery life is a big plus in this category if you plan to spend a good deal of time away from a power source and don't fancy carrying extra batteries. Another point in favor of the DSLR: weather-sealing. The 6D II is designed to handle the elements better than the RP, and that can make a big difference when you're halfway into a hike and the weather rolls in.

Both cameras offer fully articulated screens to facilitate composing shots from low angles or working on a tripod

For obvious reasons, size and weight are real concerns for photographers who will carry gear along on hikes or all-day excursions. Again, the RP would seem to have an advantage here but current native RF lenses are quite large and few in number. Adding an adapter to the kit isn't a huge amount of extra weight or bulk, but if every bit of space in your bag counts, it's something to consider.

Both cameras offer fully articulated screens to facilitate composing shots from low angles or working on a tripod. Both cameras also provide a means of recording your location via GPS – the 6D II offers it in camera while the RP requires use of Canon's smartphone app.

Overall, both cameras supply features that will certainly be appreciated by photographers who shoot landscapes among other things, but we'd hesitate to recommend either just for that purpose.
