As well as being compared against other boutiques, the Canon EOS RP is also often compared to mirrorless, pro DSLRs, entry-level DSLRs and travel zooms. The Canon EOS RP's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS R and the EOS 80D) and Sony (such as the a7 III and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI)

compared toBoutique competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon EOS RP compared to other boutique competitors include: it is slightly smaller (prosumer size (133×85×70 mm) vs professional size (136×98×84 mm)), uses fast phase detection autofocus (phase detection vs contrast detection), has significantly more focus points (4,779 vs 493), is newer (february 2019 vs september 2016) and is slightly lighter (485 g vs 725 g).

However, on average it has a significantly smaller screen (3" vs 3.2"), has a significantly lower resolution screen (1,040k dots vs 2,100k dots), takes significantly lower resolution photos (26 MP vs 45.4 MP), has a marginally smaller sensor (full frame 35.9x24mm vs full frame 44x33mm) and doesn't have an OLED screen (LCD vs OLED).
