This is a super awesome camera that takes breathtaking photos! I highly recommend this model. You might need to know your modes because this camera is more advanced than the RP model. It's not hard to learn the different modes though. This is well worth paying the extra money for the R series versus the RP. I recommend getting a few extra high capacity batteries. If you have EF lenses you will have to get an adapter but that should not stop you from buying this great camera. All EF and even EFS lenses work with this camera when using the EF adapter that I have seen so far. I have the 24-105 And the 100mm macro L series lenses and the 24-105 is my favorite. I also have some older EFS lenses such as the 18-55 and the 75-300 and both of those lenses worked well. Of course they're not as clear as the L series but they do work very well. If you get the camera with a kit lens I highly recommend the 24-105mm. Some will recommend the 24-70mm and that is great also.
Pros: Great photos.
Cons: The only con is I should've bought this camera along time ago.

I upgraded from a Canon 80d to the Canon EOS R. First I want to say that the image quality and color science is several steps higher than the 80d and for that I am well pleased. I am still getting used to the mirror-less experience and I am finding the "get what you see" through the viewfinder refreshing. The camera came with the basic EF adapter and it has worked well with my EF lenses. I like to shoot wildlife and I am giving this only four stars because I am disappointed with its difficulty in tracking flying birds. There is a "blackout" period between high fps shots and that makes it hard to continue to track the bird in flight. For stationary subjects the camera works well and for the price it is amazing.
Pros: Image quality, color science, and "get what you see" viewfinder.
Cons: Difficulty in tracking flying birds.

1) I am a semi-pro. I sell enough work at shows and galleries around town to buy my gear, beer, and mad money. I do not consider myself a full pro as I do not make a living from photos. I shoot landscape, urban & former sports. I have work published in mags and papers and have been in galleries for 8+ years 2) I shoot outside, in rain, snow & mud and my cameras are with me at all times. I take them backpacking. The cameras get dirty & used. 3) I am a C guy and have been since I moved from N years ago. I like the menus and feel of C, but as I tell many people who ask I can shoot the same images with any camera. 4) I do NOT shoot video. I've shot 2 videos for pro cycling teams throughout my years with a 7dmkI. 5) Most important. Ignore the reviews complaining about this camera. Most of the complaints are video related and I'd bet a few beers most of these guys don't make money from their videos outside Youtube bucks from people watching them complain. Decide what YOU need in a camera and chose the best camera for those needs. ALL camera's on the market shoot excellent images. I traded my 5DS for this camera. Yes, you read that correctly. I've shot and owned 7d1,5dmk3,6d1,5ds, "S" A6000. I shoot IR and FS and owned a lot of glass I considered "S" many times. Weather sealing is an issue with S. Look for the youtube where the guys spray water on N,C,S and how they faired. My cameras NEED to be used outside in bad weather.
Pros: EVF Customizable buttons Touch AF!!! WYSIWYG Weather sealing. I've shot this in snow and rain the past month with 0 issues. Lens shutter when changing lens. This is well thought by C. R lens adapter works perfectly with all lens. I shoot Canon, Sigma and Tamron IQ is as expected with Canon as are colors. I like C's menus. One of my issues with other manf Has a nice feel in my hands. @6'-1 Flip screen a nice touch and new to me.
Cons: R lens are pricey currently. Give it some time and the SIgma's and Tamrons will release R compatible lens. My current fav lens is the Tamron 15-30 beast EVF and live menu drain the battery faster, but that is expected. Has yet to fill my car with gas.
