Just got the RP - surprised how good it is
6

Decided I needed one more camera.

I have 2x 5d4s. One went down and I was stressing I did not have a backup while it was in repair. I heard a lot of good things about it and I thought it would be a good way of dipping my toe in the mirrorless water.

I am really really surprised how comfortable it is for such a little camera. I have gorilla hands and prefer a big camera.... just because it is more comfortable. However this little camera is remarkably ergonomic. It is like the weight offsets the lack of size.

The IQ seems fine to me. I do not push photos much. I shoot in a fairly contrasty style so DR is not that big a deal to me. In the studio, I am hard pressed to see a difference that matters between the 5d4 and the RP.

I am liking the EVF. It’s bit weird at first, but shooting in natural light it really is a winner. It’s funny I have a Fuji X100F... and I really do not like the EVF in that but I like the EVF in the RP

I just need to figure out how best to use eye af. I am so used to moving around the focus point that I am having trouble trusting eye AF. Silly I know.

Speaking of moving focus points.... using the screen to move it around is the best thing since sliced bread. So much faster and it just worked for me out of the gate.

Just need to get some R glass now.
