On Feb 13, 2019 Canon announced its "EOS RP" full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. The most striking feature is its very low price $1,300 (body only) which substantially undercuts Sony and Nikon bodies. It lacks in-body stabilization and its main materials are a combination of a magnesium chassis surrounded by a composite material body.

I was involved with photography back when Canon brought out their plastic body AE-1 which was the first serious plastic body 5mm auto exposure SLR and it was a huge success -- with no autofocus. When Canon brought out the EOS Rebel digital SLRs, I was not involved with photography, so most of you guys will have a better idea of how much of a success it was. I see a lot of early Rebels available used, so it looks to me like it was a similarly a big success. Am I right about that? So now we have the "EOS RP" and I think Canon is expecting that this will make a big splash like the AE-1 at least. But the world it is arriving in is very different this time. I wish them well, but I don't know what to expect.
