I was told the RP would be priced "aggressively" and when I saw the $1600 rumour, I didn't think that was really all that aggressive. The EOS R has come down to $1999 in a few places.. and a $300 difference just isn't significant. $1300 seems a bit low, but sometimes these sorts of rumors get fooled by currency exchange.

Intriguing... It's a CR1 but if these are the correct specs it could be a perfect camera to start working with the RF mount. The price sounds almost too good to be true.
400 g with comfortable grip, meaning not too small, sounds like a lot of plastic, but that would be fine for the target audience of this model and for the price.
Will be interesting to see what happens with the rumoured M5 and M6 successors as a 400g full frame with the RF 24-240 might not be much larger and heavier than a M5 with 18-150

I could easily imagine that there will be some constraints regarding menu Options and/or OS (Power Shot OS probably), no control with EOS Utility, only limited functions via Canon Camera connect. But other than that the spec list doesn't look too bad.

If I were Canon in year 2019, I would definitely not be releasing new cameras that are not suitable for external automation. Especially the cameras that are the lightest in their class.

They'll only remove features where there is a significant cost benefit in doing so. They are not going to have two different strands of firmware to support RF bodies, it'll be the same core firmware for all bodies because otherwise the development costs are ludicrous. The only reason they used the powershot firmware for the M series was that they could take advantage of the consumer-targetted features for mirrorless cameras that they'd already build for powershots).

There's no reason for them to remove EOS Utility control. It's probably something that's quite essential for them during production to test the bodies anyway.

Quite interesting move, even if the price is a little bit higher, say $1400 or $1500.

Where are the moaners? ("Meh, it does not have an EVF" :p)
