Canon EF Lenses on Canon EOS RP Camera

Is there any cropping happens in full frame sensor of EOS RP camera when using EF lenses (like EF 50mm f1.8 stm) ?

Hi Lalin

Thanks for your question about image cropping when using a Canon EF lens on a Canon RP camera. Compatibility of lenses and camera body systems can be very confusing.

The quick answer is no. You don't have to worry about your RP camera and cropping with full sensor lenses like the Canon EF series.



Realize that you need the EF-EOS R adapter to use your EF (and EF-S ) lenses on the mirrorless "R" series of Canon mirrorless cameras.

Surprisingly, you can use the smaller EF-S "crop" lenses on the full frame Canon RP camera, albeit with the 1.6X cropping. What happens is that just the center portion of your RP sensor is being used. That's good news for Canon geeks like me who have both EF and EF-S lenses in their gear bag. I use both my EF-S 10-18 and my EF-S 18-135 lenses on my full frame Canon R.


EF-EOS ADAPTER FOR CANON RP



One of the big decisions to make is which EF-EOS R adapter to get when using your EF lenses on your Canon RP camera.

I went through the same quandary with my Canon R camera, the big brother of the RP. I shot a short video on using both EF and EF-S lenses on Canon R cameras (same full size sensor as RP) that should be helpful: Which EF-EOS R adapter is best?

I hope this helps.
