EOS-RP(440g) is 64% of the weight of the 6D mark II(685g)...

Or: the 6DII shouldn't have been that heavy in the first place. Good to see this trend.

Agree. Good to have such a portable option. Especially for travel.

Just curious anyone pre-order this camera? RP + RF24-105 seems to be too heavy.

The focus bracketing is the single reason to buy this body. I won’t even consider it without this feature as Canon has done it again: castrate lower end bodies so not to cannibalize their more lucrative brethrens.
Would I buy it? Absolutely! It trumps my 6D in the autofocus and focusing points department and of course the focus bracketing I mentioned earlier since I do a lot of products shots. The feature cuts my work hours by more than 60%. That’s a big deal.
Street price at new launch already goes $200 below RRP which is unbearable for a FF.

I have the kit. Lens is short but fat and is heavy.
But the combo is worth it: speed, focusing distance can be viewed from the screens and the excellent control ring.

The question should be: 'How well do 3rd party lenses work with the cameras?' - Canon tends to modify communication protocols without announcements, only considering backward compatibility with own equipment. Some pointers (based on own experience).
Chipped adapters: there are several different types in the market, some might cause issues.
Aperture control: should work fine, haven't heard of any problems here.
Auto focus: expect some focus hunting with third party lenses. With AF sensors embedded in the image sensor the topic of front/back focus is gone.
Flash: EOS M series already had issues with Yongnuo triggers. Luckily YN triggers can be updated to newer firmware and YN is providing updates. Now flawless.

Currently eos RP comes with canon RF to EF adapter so i think should be ok?~

That's just a physical adapter (covering the different flange distance) and passing through the EF mount lens contacts. It doesn't have any intelligence (unless it's the type with the additional ring). Likely, if a lens works on EF mount it will also work with adapter on RF mount. Still there is a chance that Canon changed something in the body-lens communication and it can affect third party lenses.
Check with any shop that have a show model, ask whether you can try your lens with EF-RF adapter.

had the body with bundled ef-r adaptor and covered 2-3 events using ef lens on the adaptor. so far so good; focusing speed and interface. also worked fine with manual fd-mount lens.

Anyone tried with EFs lenses, is it auto cropped or you need to change settings?
Lastly how many megapixel will that mode be?

Thanks in advance!
