Canon EOS RP declares full-frame war: 26.2MP, 440g, £1,399, $1,299

Less than six months after the release of the Canon EOS R, the company’s debut full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon has launched the second model in the RF mount family: the Canon EOS RP.

Many pundits predicted that the RP would be a professional-grade model, but Canon has instead targeted advanced amateurs who are looking to move up to a full-frame system. Rather than ‘professional’, the P in the model name actually stands for ‘Popular’ – which, in a suitably Japanese sense of the word, means that this is a camera for the masses; it’s an inclusive camera.
