Conclusion from DPReview:

The Canon EOS RP‘s specifications aren’t exactly exciting, but don’t let that fool you – it’s a likable little camera with engaging controls, good build quality and it produces excellent JPEGs. Of course, the Raw files are noisier and aren’t as malleable as some more contemporary full-frame cameras, but for the target audience, that won’t likely be a deal breaker. For those users looking for a friendly way to get into full-frame imaging, the EOS RP is an excellent option.
