Re: Canon EOS RP? Or Wait for R5?

If the RP meets your needs, you would have a lot of money left for glass over the R5.  The R5 won't be available for quite some time.  Also, the R6 might be something you want to consider.  If the RP works, then you could get it now, build up your glass and then buy a higher end model when you need it.  The glass will retain its value more than the bodies.  Another thing to consider is the RP does have a smaller battery than the R, so it won't run video as long as the R or the newer bodies to come.  But the RP is supremely portable.

If you want to shoot sports or action, I would wait as the RP just isn't fast enough.
