This is dangerously close to off topic, or at least it could be fuel for divisive argument rather than informed discussion (most readers here might be short on details of NumPy and long on details regarding R).

Have you used a search engine? Google found https://www.r-bloggers.com/2011/03/a-short-side-by-side-comparison-of-the-r-and-numpy-array-types/ for me.

Under the hood, R and NumPy often use the same compiled code for numerical algorithms, so to some degree it is more a matter of taste in how you get at those algorithms.
