I think I have PTSD over what Canon expected me to pay for the 6D2, and in line with the thread, unless a small, light FF body like the RP has small, light lenses available, it is rather pointless to me.

Everyone has their own ways of seeing things, this is one that I don't really understand.  The camera and lens are a unit while in use.  Lower the weight of either of them and you've lowered the weight of the unit.  If lowering weight is the point, then lowering the total weight should serve the point.

I was all set to buy the 6D2, just waiting for checks to clear when the RP came out at a price that surprised me.  I'd handled the 6D2 in store and it was fairly similar in size and weight to my outgoing 50D.  The RP is clearly lighter and smaller, making the entire unit lighter and smaller no matter what lens I'm using.  I also feel that a lighter body balances better with large lenses, but probably only because I've gotten used to that over time.
