Candid and street

Canon EOS 6D Mark II with EF 24-105mm F4L IS II USM | ISO 1000 | 1/500sec | F8

Both the RP and 6D II offer a number of features that would appeal to a street photographer looking to keep a low profile and capture the decisive moment. Both offer great-looking JPEGs and a flip-out screen to aid shooting from the hip (paired with Canon's excellent Dual Pixel AF). Unfortunately, neither camera truly offers silent shooting – it's not available on the 6D II and the RP offers it as a scene mode without exposure controls.

There's not much between the two cameras in terms of size either, once you account for the adapter you'll almost certainly need (for now) on the RP. Both of these options also offer wireless connectivity for easy image sharing.

As we cautioned landscape-oriented folks, the limited dynamic range that the RP and 6D II offer may be of concern to some street photographers. If you'd like some flexibility in pushing shadows then you may want to look elsewhere, but between the two cameras neither presents a significantly better feature set for street photographers.
