I wonder what features can they drop. The frame rate is pretty low already, the body is not that special either - what is that cheap rebel-like directional pad?
They probably put a 6D sensor and lower quality EVF.
I agree with your perspective that the R doesn't have a lot of fat to trim (relative to the competition) to make this lean offering. I don't see how they can NOT reuse the 6d2 sensor unless they are going to buy someone else's sensor. But that seems highly unlikely as this is the camera where Canon is going to reap in the majority of their FF dollars, and margin would suffer if they don't use their own sensor.
If someone had an afternoon to burn, they could do a detailed comparisin of a 5d4 to a 6d2 and probably predict with good accuracy which features from the R will be gimped to make the RP. Fewer focus points and fewer AF modes would be an obvoius place to start.
