Rumors of the Canon EOS RP are boiling over and now we might know all the pieces about this upcoming compact full-frame mirrorless digicam.
A sequence of photographs of the Canon EOS RP leaked on Nokishita, reveal what is actually a compact model of the corporate’s first (and at the moment solely) full-frame mirrorless digicam, the Canon EOS R.
From the included photos and specs, we are able to surmise that the EOS RP shall be smaller and lighter than its predecessor. The brand new digicam will purportedly measure 132.5 x 85.zero x 70.0mm in dimensions and weigh only one.07 kilos. Comparatively, the EOS R is 136 x 98 x 84mm in dimension and weighs 1.45 kilos.
That’s a heck of rather a lot smaller, however the shrinkage appears to have sadly eradicated the highest LCD, which we felt was extraordinarily useful for adjusting and glancing on the digicam settings on the EOS R. Excellent news is the Canon EOS RP seems prefer it nonetheless will characteristic an articulating display that flips out and turns forwards.
Speccing it out
Nokishita additionally studies the Canon EOS RP will characteristic a 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, possible pulled from the Canon 6D Mark II.
Provided that potential tip, we are able to speculate that the EOS RP will inherit most of the 6D Mark II’s specs together with the dual-pixel autofocus system, Digic eight picture processor, 5 fps steady capturing mode and 100-40,000 native ISO vary.
In line with one other report from CanonRumors, the EOS RP would possibly sport a price ticket of $1,499 (about £1,160, AU$2,110) to $1,599 (about £1,230, AU$2,250).
This potential price ticket positions it as a direct competitor to the $1,999 (£1,899, AU$3,185) Nikon Z6 and $1,999 (£1,849, AU$3,099) Sony Alpha A7 III, that are at the moment probably the most inexpensive full-frame mirrorless cameras in the marketplace.
Moreover, CanonRumors recommend that Canon may also launch 5 new RF mount lenses alongside the EOS RP. The purported lenses are as follows:
- Canon RF 85mm f1.2L USM
- Canon RF 15-35mm f2.8L IS USM
- Canon RF 24-70mm f2.8L IS USM
- Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.Three IS USM
- Canon RF 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM
The Canon EOS RP’s rumored February 14th launch date is almost upon us, so we’ll know whether or not this digicam is actual quickly sufficient.
