I purchased as EOS RP with RF 24-105 lens and have taken about 2k photos with the combination, mostly on a trip to Iceland that include some time in Reykjavik but was mostly focused on hiking. Previous digital full frame cameras I have used extensively: 5D, 6D, 5DS R. Previous mirrorless cameras I have used extensively: EOS M, EOS M5. To lead things off, I found this to be an outstanding travel/hiking kit. The user experience and image quality was much better than the EOS M and M5. It was a clear upgrade from the 5D and 6D. Although the 5DS R has some advantages, it very much prefer hiking with the EOS RP than the 5DS R (when the focus is hiking, I use a cotton carrier vest for my camera). I did travel with a tripod, but my hiking companions had me lagging far behind if I took the time to set it up for photos. The IS of the EOS RP with RF 24-105 lens combination was great. I was able to get acceptably sharp (for me) photos with 1 sec exposures (example with this post, 32mm, ISO 50, F22, 1 sec). I look forward to trying the RF 24-240 lens when it is available.
