I don't see any problems with adapting EF lenses on the RP (or the R). The problem (for me personally) is that Canon gave up on updating their cheaper/smaller prime lens family. They don't offer any modern, fast yet affordable 50mm or 58mm or 85mm or 28mm or 20mm or 100mm or 200mm or 300mm ... I'm not going to spend $10K on pro optics for the consumer level RP with "crippled out" features, buttons, batteries and sensor. Buying new cameras even for old lenses should be exciting and refreshing. Not limiting. Unless it's your first camera, of course.

By updating your camera body with a better performing sensor and AF all your lenses are improved. But being a camera company you’ll make more if you had the customer rebuy every focal length to get the improvements.
