It seems that your screenshot of DPReview was not a demonstration of the EOS RP.  The EOS RP uses a different manual focus aid called Focus Peaking.  Go to Red Menu #8 to enable it.

Hi and welcome to the forum:

The triangles are a manual focus assist feature.  If you check out the following video AT THIS LINK and go to timestamp 3:20, you can see an explanation of how this work.

If this resolves your issue and you don't need further questions or comments posted to you, please label this post as a resolution.

Hello, Chris.

The feature you are wanting is called "Focus guide". I searched the latest EOS RP advanced user guide and didn't see it, so it's possible the RP doesn't have that feature. I guess I could have missed it or Canon has it labeled weird.

In our R5 and R6 Focus Guide has it's own menu (enable/disable) and even when focus guide is enabled, the lens has to be set to manual focus (MF), so try switching the lens to MF and see if you get the guide as it may be a default with no on/off selection in the RP menu. I doubt it, but you never know 🙂

I just went through the logs for firmware updates for the RP and don't see any features added that are specific to the 100mmL macro lens.   I am wondering if one has to turn on manual focus within the camera's menus in order to see the feature, given that it is a manual focus feature... 

On P200 of the Advanced User Guide" LINK here, it confirms that you have to go to the first set of (Red) menus, Page 8 and select Lens Electronic Manual Focus to enable that.  I am wondering if the OP had done that.
