Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon RP, which was introduced in February 2019 is a Semi-Pro Mirrorless camera with a 26.0MP Full frame sensor whereas Sony A77 II, which was introduced in May 2014 is a Semi-Pro DSLR camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Canon RP is ranked #1
out of 44 Semi-Pro Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 85 whereas Sony A77 II is ranked #10
out of 90 Semi-Pro DSLR cameras with an overall score of 83.
Let's have a brief look at the main features of Canon RP and Sony A77 II before getting into our more detailed comparison.
