That's not even close to my mindset... I just don't know 100% where I want to be and that's what is coming across. A full body camera isn't going to produce better quality images, not unless its also got a better sensor at the same time. Any MILC is of course going to have better IQ...

I can go from E mount to A mount with Sony as well as I can go from EF-M to EF-S or EF. I just don't know where I want to be. Join the dark side, by a Sony, you guys have actually honestly been really helpful.

Not trying to come across here as a troll at all...

you're taking the wrong way.

take it the opposite way : find the lens you want to use, and get the body that goes with it with your remaining money.

and again, with adapters on mirrorless, you don't care what mount you have. just focus on ease of you for your hands and habits.

earlier you said that you wanted something close to 24mm at f3.5, and 300mm on the tele end at f5.6.
that's exactly what all the 18-200 and/or 18-250 lenses from all manufacturers become after the crop factor on APS-C.

or get an A7 or A7R now, and wait for the 24-70 f4 and the 70-200 f4 that will be released in february and april this year. you can play with current lenses in the mean time.

the lense should always be at the start of your purchase decision. you will keep them for a long time.
bodies have become consumer goods that get replaced very quickly now.
