Canon EOS RP 199,490
Canon and Nikon between them shared over 85 percent of the D-SLR market in 2018. Sony’s success in the full-frame mirrorless market spurred up development efforts by competitors. This included Panasonic, a Micro Four Thirds player so far. Both Canon and Nikon launched their full-frame mirrorless cameras last year at Photokina 2018. Nikon’s approach was more aggressive and both, the Z6 and Z7, met with near universal acclaim from the world press.

Design and Build Quality
The Canon EOS RP is a compact and lightweight version of the EOS R. The body is made of magnesium alloy and offers dust and moisture resistance. This is the smallest and lightest of all EOS cameras with a 35 mm full-frame sensor, and we believe Canon has done a great job here. The camera has two command dials. The camera has a metal lens mount, and the overall construction feels good. The body and the lens are made in Japan.
The EOS RP is a 26.2-megapixel mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, which uses a 35.9 x 24.0 mm (Full Frame) CMOS sensor. The sensor uses a self-cleaning feature to keep away dust along with dust delete data acquisition and appending. The camera uses a Canon RF mount, compatible with Canon RF lens group (excluding EF, EF-S and EF-M lenses). EF lenses can be used along with the EF-EOS R adapter. The EOS RP uses a DIGIC 8 processor.
