After much soul-searching I had decided that the Canon EOS RP, despite not having In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), is the best camera for I since all the lenses I plan to get have built in Image Stabilization (IS). I like the lenses that Canon has or plan to have over those available by Nikon for the Z6.
Right now I only ordered the RF (i.e., mirrorless mount) 24-105m f/4 L IS USM lens. People rave about it and it fits into my preference for zooms.
I ordered it, as a bundle, from Amazon — the bundle supplied by ‘Cardinal Camera‘. I have bought cameras and lenses from Cardinal in the past with good luck. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed.
I hadn’t actually planned to order today. I was going to wait until mid-week. Then I saw that it wasn’t 2-Day Prime. So, to be on the safe side I pulled the trigger.
The bundle comes with the EOS RP grip and the ‘EF-EOS R’ mount adapter. So, that is quite the deal. Good price.
I am NOT going to get many lenses this time around. At most 4, most likely 3. The next is going to be the affordable and highly-rated RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS.
Note both lenses have ‘IS’. This was the only reason I was able to justify getting the Canon EOS RP.

Well, we went to the Sunday, April 14, 2019 clinic at our local Petco in Rochester. We got there about 12:45. Registration was easy enough though it could have been quicker if it was done on a proper PC screen as opposed to a 9″ tablet.
For a full complement of shots, including a rabies booster, it was $99 per dog. I am not sure how much of a saving that was. I just can’t remember.
One other thing bothers me. The rabies booster was only for 1-year. My previous one was for 3-years. To be fair they only charged $10 each for the rabies. But, that is something else I want to investigate.
But, overall a decent, positive experience. Convenient enough. There were 7 others ahead of us, but they saw us within 20-minutes or so. The vet was pleasant and appeared to be competent. Well, we now have another year before we need to worry about shots for the dogs again.
Never asked for Sunday, or even 1-day delivery.
Just ordered them ‘2-day’ Prime — given I am a Prime Member of longstanding.
Kind of funny. Shortly after I placed the orders it showed SUNDAY delivery. So, they are planning for it.
I am sure the USPS is not complaining. Spoke to the delivery person today. He seemed quite happy. He is getting paid.
Doesn’t make sense.
And as a AMZN shareholder (also of longstanding) this bothers me, though, OF COURSE, I cannot complain about the ROI I have got from AMZN. Smile.

Wasn’t sure whether I could walk on the sand in crutches. Wasn’t a problem. Piece of cake — actually.
3-more days on crutches. Will be glad to ditch them.
