Vintage Street Style Editorial with new Canon EOS RP and RF lens

Posted on May 10th, 2019

This shooting has been and interesting collaboration between my team and the team of Xariss Fashion Experiences. For this shoting session we’ve planned a session in the style of the ’60 with the model prepared perfectly to match the iconic look of that days.

This editorial was also the correct opportunity to use the new Canon RP mirrorless full frame camera. And even more, I was very curious to try the new RF lens, developed for the new format. I had then with me the Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro and the new Canon RF 50mm f/1.2.

My opinion is that Canon finally achieved to deliver a good mirrorless camera. The strength is for sure the weight: the Canon EOS RP with the Canon RF 35mm weight about 800gr so almost the same as my Fujifilm X-T2 with the 35mm f/1.4.

I will not debate here about the war of full frame vs APS-C or if it is better Canon or Fujifilm. I don’t care. I just want to say that Canon has a good product at the right price.

For lot of owners with Canon EF lens that want to get a new mirrorless camera, they will find this product suitable ’cause with the package come also the EF to RF adaptor. I’ve tested my old Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 and I’ve to say that I haven’t noticed any problem with the focus (the problem could be more about the focus speed of the lens itself that wasn’t excellent).

    Thanks for the review. The images are really sharp and the level of detail is amazing. Sony’s fanboys are always criticising Canon cameras but this review is a clear example that an entry-level full-frame camera, as the EOS RP, is capable of rendering fantastic images despite that it has not the same dynamic range as Sony cameras have. By far Canon lenses are the best.

      Thanks Salvador! Yes, Canon is putting a very strong efforts especially on the new RF lens! We often forget that photography is done mainly by the optics, so having this magnificent new glasses is a joy to use even on the cheaper Canon body!
