Canon EOS RP is indeed a design marvel. Canon has managed to integrate a full-frame sensor in a body which weighs just 485 grams. Featuring 'Dual Pixel CMOS AF', EOS RP feels extremely lightweight in hands unless you haven't strapped a big lens on the camera mount. And honestly, most of the RF lenses are going to make the camera feel a bit oversized due to such large diameter of the lens mount on a smaller body of EOS RP.
Nevertheless, it's a compromise that you have to make if you are in the market for the lightest full-frame mirrorless camera. Canon EOS RP has magnesium allow chassis and a well-defined body that will please shutterbugs. The buttons, dials, and ports are placed at correct spots. The grip is not the deepest but with such compact body on EOS RP; you will find a good hold while clicking pictures.
The camera features a Vari-angle touch-enabled LCD screen. You also get a customizable electronic viewfinder (EVF) that as per Canon provides 100% coverage and has 2.36million dots OLED display.

This lens is particularly suitable for extreme wide-angle view in close tight situations, mostly for landscape photography. The lens has a focal length of 15mm to 35mm. It can be paired with Image Stabilizer to enhance results in low-light condition.

RF85mm f/1.2L USM DS- This is Canon's first lens to feature the Defocus Smoothing(DS) effect made possible by new coating technology. The technology is said to produce softer and smoother bokeh effect.
