I Ordered A ‘Canon EOS RP’ Camera With The RF 24-105 F/4 L IS USM Lens From Amazon/Cardinal Camera.

So, I finally did it! I ordered a Canon EOS RP full-frame, mirrorless camera to replace the Sony a7 II (which was also full-frame and mirrorless) that I sold, on eBay, a few weeks ago.

After much soul-searching I had decided that the Canon EOS RP, despite not having In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), is the best camera for I since all the lenses I plan to get have built in Image Stabilization (IS). I like the lenses that Canon has or plan to have over those available by Nikon for the Z6.

Right now I only ordered the RF (i.e., mirrorless mount) 24-105m f/4 L IS USM lens. People rave about it and it fits into my preference for zooms.

I ordered it, as a bundle, from Amazon — the bundle supplied by ‘Cardinal Camera‘. I have bought cameras and lenses from Cardinal in the past with good luck. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I hadn’t actually planned to order today. I was going to wait until mid-week. Then I saw that it wasn’t 2-Day Prime. So, to be on the safe side I pulled the trigger.

The bundle comes with the EOS RP grip and the ‘EF-EOS R’ mount adapter. So, that is quite the deal. Good price.

I am NOT going to get many lenses this time around. At most 4, most likely 3. The next is going to be the affordable and highly-rated RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS.

Note both lenses have ‘IS’. This was the only reason I was able to justify getting the Canon EOS RP.
