    Camera question.

    Hey all,
    I've decided to down size to using mirrorless full time. And a good P&S to carry daily.
    So I bought a Canon GX7 mark II to cover the P&S area. I must say that is a pretty decent camera. By far the best P&S I've ever owned.
    Now, for the mirrorless.
    I own a Olympus OMD-EM10 Mark III with a assortment of lenses which I'm not sure if I'm going to get rid of or keep. It is a nice set up.
    So, getting on to my question.
    I'm looking at these cameras:
    Sony A7 II with the 28-70 lense.
    Sony A6000 kit with 2 lenses
    Fujifilm XT100 with 2 lenses
    They are have good enough reviews.
    The Sony A7 II really sounds interesting because it's full fame. And has some decent features. But I would need to purchase a flash right off because it doesn't have a onboard one.
    Thoughts anybody?

    Re: Camera question.

    Maybe find a Sony forum?

    From a more constructive point of view, I have a Sony RX100 and my brother is a Canon Pro rep, and all he will say about the difference in quality is that his costs half as much. LOL Seriously, though, I got it because a music festival I go to every year (there isn't a pandemic) stopped letting me bring in my a6000 because "It's a pro camera because you can take the lens off". I sold the a6000 and now have a killer camera I can put in my pocket. Is it worth the difference? Dunno. I just love that I shoot Nikon and Sony because it makes my brother nuts.

    @weebee if you are considering FF you should give the Z5 or 6 a look. I absolutely love my Z6 and I disagree with the negative reviews. I use mine for about everything but birds in flight... but I never was good at birds in flight.

    if you have shop near by just give it a try.

    Re: Camera question.

    There are many options when it comes to cameras and lenses. I am owning a Nikon D750 and I must say that this is a great camera. I have used it for every kind of thing and I am impressed. When it comes to video quality, it's not that good. After all, it's a camera made for photos, not videos, but it works if you don't have any other option. The lens are also really important. I must admit that I've looked at the best nikon lenses in order to get one that suits my needs. It's up to your budget honestly. The good thing is that there is something for everyone!
