I have been using a decent compact point and shoot. It is time to add a better-quality camera and lenses but still want to stay on a budget. The best choice appears to be an RP and am debating on the package with the EF 24-105 with the EF adapter or just going RF all the way. What is the tradeoff for convenience and image quality using the adapter and EF lenses versus just using RF lenses? Can I save a lot of money with EF lenses? Is that a penny-wise and pound-foolish question? I mostly like to shoot architecture, historic, and abandonment. At this time, I plan to buy something like a 14-35, a 24-105 or a 70-200?, and maybe a zoom lens. What do you recommend? Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forum:
It would help to have a bit more detail, for example you say: "still want to stay on a budget", but we have no idea what that budget is, and that's significant - it decides what limit you have on what we can suggest
Can I suggest you review the following post and consider the questions it poses, then come back with your considerations. We can certainly help, but the less we know about your specific needs and criteria that more you are likely to get other folks' preferences that may, or may not, work for you.
Considerations for buying camera gear

If you have no EF gear at the moment don't buy any if you are going R series. The future is R not EF.
"I have been using a decent compact point and shoot."
Normally I would never say this or recommend it but if you were happy with your P&S camera, why not check out the M50 Mk II. It is essentially a P&S that you can change lenses on.

I shall wait to see what our OP comes back with before making a commitment to a suggestion.

P&S is all the M50 series is or ever was. If you have/had success with a P&S why not? I own and use a G1X and love it. I had a G15 before it. So I am not anti-P&S at all, if that's what a person wants. I think I have been pretty consistent on that point. My main most thing is why an M series when the Powershot cameras are so good? Ya wanna change lenses, OK, fine, buy a M50 Mk II. You want a real camera buy an R series!
