RF-S 18-150

The new review of the Canon RF-S 18-150 states:  "The RF-S18-150mm lens is a longer-range standard zoom, equivalent to 29-240mm lens coverage on a full frame. While ideal for the new EOS R10 and EOS R7 APS-C sized sensor bodies, these lenses can be used for any R-series camera."

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, I could use this lens on my RP full frame body.  Right?  Are there any ramifications of using this lens on a full frame body?

Is Your RP an R-series camera? If yes, then you could. If not, then you could not .

Are there any ramifications of using this lens on a full frame body?

FF body will go automatically to its crop mode. Nothing else will happen.

Yes, the RP is definitely an R series body.  The smallest one of the group.

The RP will switch to crop mode only using the center 10MP from the sensor. You will see a field of view similar to 28-240mm lens on FF. So if you have the RF 24-240mm you can get similar FOV with full 24MP

Both of you are correct. 26mp cropped to APS-C size is 26mp / 1.6^2 ~= 10mp. By the same token, an EOS R will let you shoot at 12mp, R6 at 8mp and R5 at 18mp.

Re: RF-S 18-150

As others have written, the RP will enter crop mode and give you 10Mp pictures.

A crop EF-S lens would not fit a full frame EF body, so there's a small advantage to mirrorless there.

It will be just like using an EF-S lens on an RP, only the RF version won't need an adapter.  The RF version will also use the RF communications protocol with the RP so there may be some incremental improvements in performance.

10MP APS-C

Sounds like it.

Since it is made for a crop sensor camera, the lens cannot cover a Full Frame sensor. So the camera will go into 1.6x crop mode, which only leaves it with 10MP on an RP.   (or 8MP on a R6 or 18MP on an R5)

So the ramification is that you will be shooting with a 1.6x 10MP sensor when you use an RF-S lens.

But, you will get a much smaller and lighter lens than the Full Frame RF 24-240. And for vacation snaps or family outing photos, 10MP might be more than enough.

RF24-105/STM would be better with your RP
