Would EOS RP fail me like that in events shooting ??
EOS RP seems just alright for me except for events, so how do you think it will perform if I will use it for shooting events with flash ?? using flash with my 7DMK2 in live view mode with flash has never been a great idea, the camera meters as if flash wasn't here and AF performance is disappointing, how would EOS RP perform ??
Toni-a, if you have problems with flash and a 7D II from a metering POV at weddings, I'd sincerely suggest you acquire a few books on the use of flash photography with one or more chapters on shooting wedding type environments, and practice a lot.
As to focusing: the RP uses the same system as the RF, so I'd expect it to focus correctly up to -6 EV or slightly more light (-5 EV?), which essentially is a starlit type of environment.
HTH, kind regards, Wim
