X-T20 w Fujinon XF 18-55 vs D80 w Tamron 17-50/2,8

Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting a new camera. The old one is, well, getting a bit old and want to try something a bit more modern and small. So got interested into the x-T20

As my girlfriend is doing some jewelry so she would like to use the camera and lens for product photos too. So to be able to get a nice blurry, backgrounds for her jewelry pictures are important.

So how would you guys think the the 18-55/2,8-4 with the X-T20 compare with my D80 and Tamron 17-50/2.8? Is it possible to get nice depth of field similar to for instance these two:

We do have kind of a limited budget (both students) so having a lot of lenses probably won't be possible (yes, also buying the the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 80/2,8 is out of our price range).

One of the reasons for maybe buying the X-T20 is to use it for snapping some pics on our next travels as well, and for that the size of the X-T20 looks nice. And the 18-55 too for that matter.

So what do you guys think? Is the X-T20 with the kit 18-55 a good idea?

Thank you for any help
