Greetings all!

It my first time posting on this forum, whihch i have found very usefull so far.

I would like to get into photography, perhaps as a side business one day... Always loved it.

well to be honest you're immediately starting ass backwards.  look at the system, how easily you can get repairs, equipment, accessories in your area.  check out the local used market - what seems to have more available (also means a more healthy - buy-use-sell market to reduce use-cost of equipment).

camera bodies get replaced every 2-3 years .. replacing a system is much more involved and more difficult.

having a sour or a non existent used market (from both a buy / sell) can cost you thousands of extra dollars over time.

then after that, focus on the lenses then the camera in which you believe matches what you want to shoot.  start small and build your kit incrementally.
