Which camera body would you sell???

Which camera body would you sell??? Just looking for advice, please read in entirely…

Basically would like to settle down on max two different camera systems…

At the beginning of this year I started replacing some gear, sold the 7D and bought a7R, sold the E-M5 and bought E-M1. Gear is shared between me and my girlfriend.

Each camera body has its pluses and cons (look below).

I prefer the E-M1 when just walking around and 5DIII if I want to shoot wildlife. A7R supposed to be my girlfriend’s main camera, but because of some short comings of that kit, this might not be the best bet for her. She would never use the 5D and when she had the 7D she rarely used that, because of the size.

The 5DIII will stay for now.

I was thinking about selling the a7R and getting E-M10 as replacement, this way we would only have two types of mounts. If I sell the a7R the Sony FE 28-70 and Metabones would go with it. My concern is the M4/3 system, having a smaller sensor would be somewhat limited for future upgrades, but also hoping that E-M10 would be easier for my Girlfriend to use.

But I was also thinking of selling the E-M1 and getting the A6000 as replacement… If I would sell the E-M1 and keep the a7R, I could keep the a7R and keep playing with vintage lenses, and my girlfriend could use the A6000. If I could keep the a7R, and sell the E-M1 I could replace the FE 28-70 with the Zeiss 24-70 and at later point get the Zeiss 55. Sony full frame lens line up is pretty limited, and seeing Sony crop E lens lineup, I don’t have huge expectations…
