Quote:Haha, talk about misreading my post! And in weird ways. I specifically have pointed out that shallow DOF is not the purpose of this thread and of the OP (you). So I seem to be well aware of what you are after.
What I am saying: Try out the actual cameras mentioned (such as the Sony A6300, the Penasonic, the Olympus, even the Canon EOS M5, or a Fuji that might fit the bill). See how they operate, how their menus are, how they feel and how their EVF is for you (not me). I also said "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."
I think that is pretty sound advice.
That is sound advice. Threads always seem to start growing like trees. Then sometimes the forest gets hidden by the trees.
Unfortunately the local camera store is a dead thing where I'm at. Some of the brick and mortar places will have a scattering of kits, but it's really bad. I did use my friends Fuji X-pro for an evening. The EVF worked pretty darn good. It is a little big for what I want. To the point it would be hard not to just pick up a T6I with an 18-135IS lens.
I also had an advanced P&S a few years back with an EVF too. It wasn't bad, and they've come a long way. Menus are something you get used too.
As of right now the Oly Pen F is high on my list.
