I have an old Canon, but it’s outdated and so heavy that I haven’t hauled it out in a few years. I would like to up my game to a lighter mirrorless.
I’m trying to keep my budget close to $1,000 for now to dip my toes into the mirrorless world and see if I want to buy a more powerful mirrorless or stick with DSLRs later this year and keep this one for quick shots.
For personal use, I’ll be shooting mostly active grandbabies. 😁
Professionally, I’ll be shooting mostly florals and animals like Highland cows and Kune Kune pigs with a few landscapes thrown in. I’ll be shooting rural scenes like tractors in the field, grain bins, and water towers. Many images will be for a blog, but I’ll be adding some of the nicer ones to FAA for sale.
Any suggestions? I’m NOT loyal to Canon, but plan to invest in some nice glass over the next few months, so I’d like to make sure I get a good mirrorless system.
I’ve been looking at the Nikon Z-50 with two-lens kit (NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR) at about $1,100. Not sure if I need both those lenses or if the kit with just the 16-50 would be sufficient.
The other one I’m looking at is the EOS M6 Mark II + EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM + EVF Kit. It’s priced about the same, but only has the one lens.
Any help please? Is there another mirrorless brand you’d go with?
I’ve got paralysis of analysis at the moment and feel like I’m in over my head since it’s been so long since I’ve used anything but my iPhone camera. 🤷🏻♀️ TIA
Thank y’all so much! When it came down to adding a camera to the shopping cart, Canon really didn’t appeal to me because I wasn’t thrilled with my old one.
After taking everyone’s advice into consideration, I ordered a Nikon Z-50 today!
Nikon, Fuji, and Sony all had their strengths and I think I would be happy with any of them.
The final deciding factor was the fact that I realized that I gravitate to the D-850 if I’m not happy with mirrorless and the Z-9 that’s coming out later this year if I do like mirrorless, so I need to stay with the brand.
I’m so excited and can’t wait to get it next week! 🥰
Thanks again to everyone that gave me things to think about! 😘
