Quote:For the Sony you only look at two cheap zooms. Canon offers similar lenses, with the standard zoom being a bit better than Sony's.
The M5 is quite well liked by users, by the way. To me it makes no sense to say the M6 looks more interesting than the M5, as they are internally basically the same camera, only the M5 offers that EVF?
Have you handled any mirrorless cameras? Do that first. Try to find settings in menus, try controls and feel. And try how those EVF's look to you, I can't stand the screen flicker (I think I am more sensitive to than than most others), lag. It is more important for you to find the camera that is least annoying, or nicest to use, than a small difference in size or specs.
Yes I have, and reading your comments it's pretty clear what I would value in an MILC is not your thing. I do have top level gear with very fast lenses. However, I really dislike just carrying them around with me, so I don't. I've lugged a 1ds with fast lenses around Asia, it wasn't really much fun. Which is why I had picked up a rebel and a 17-70 lens, which was stolen and put me on this quest. Someone else doesn't probably doesn't care and is fine carrying a brick with a bunch of fast lenses all day. I'm over it. Also, for most the street and vacation photography I do I generally prefer a deep DOF. In these situations I'm not doing portraits, and when I am I want to show the person in a setting, not isolated.
