Sigma FP or Canon EOS RP for compact fullframe setup

I'm looking to get a small full-frame setup and currenty I'm looking at the Sigma FP and the EOS RP.

For what it's worth I have a DP2 Merrill and a DP3 Quattro and I really enjoy using them. The plan for this new setup would be something a bit more versatile that can be easily packed into a small bag or ideally a large coat pocket.

Sigma FP pros:
- Smaller
- Better image quality. (Subjective, but I like the look from the sample images a lot)
- Better lens selection (I'm looking at the I-series lenses for their compactness. 45 & 65 would work great for my shooting style. Also, this seems like a good plan if the L-mount foveon camera gets released)
- Has more crop modes (I like 7:6 and 4:3 on my quattro)
- Can share batteries and charger with my DP3

Canon RP pros:
- Much cheaper
- Has a viewfinder and tiltable screen
- Mechanical shutter
- More megapixels
For the RP I would probably go for the RF 50mm 1.8. Or perhaps adapt the EF 40mm 2.8 pancake. I already own a EF 100/2 lens that I would like to keep using with an adapter on either system.

Are there any users of both systems here? Thankful for any input.
