RIP v2, OSPF dynamically adding and removing nodes

I am deciding to whether use OSPF or RIPv2 on my network. The key point for me is how good each of them are in dynamically adding and removing nodes. I am pretty sure that OSPF works well if a node is suddenly dropped or a new one is introduced( Please correct me if I am wrong).

I can not however find any information telling how good RIPv2 is at this. anyone know the answer or point to an article?
