Re: Rp ruined by old sensor tech

In the USA, the M6 II with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 and EVF-DC2 is currently $999. The EOS RP with the RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 is now on sale for the same $999. Both kits get you an EVF and 24-XXX general purpose zoom. If you are already invested in the EF-M or RF mount, the price of the alternative is probably of little interest. If you are transitioning from the Canon DSLRs, the choice gets more interesting. While the M6 II is lighter than the RP kit, the RP kit is lighter than many of the crop sensor DSLR kits and much lighter than any of the full frame DSLRs.

I was really tempted by the RP for a minute, but the sensor is really bad. Has less DR than even 1" compacts and 4/3. Just look through any sample gallery and you'll find slightly clipped highlights and crushed blacks. Download some RAW files and try to edit them and you'll find the same thing where colors are easily clipped.

This has nothing to do with DR, if true.
