Forget about the a7ii, it's not a successful camera, if you need FF then go A7iii or a used a7rii if on budget.

Both of those are out of my budget. I decided I’ll buy the Fuji now, and if I eventually start to miss the IBIS and FF, buy the A7III after 4-ish years, once the price drops.

Fuji lenses are all great, you can get cheap ones like the 23mm f2 in the 400ish$ or expensive 1500$, but you have tremendous lenses between 700 and 1000$ like the 16mm f1. 4 and 16-55

Do you have any specific recommendations for cheap quality lenses? I’m eyeing the Samyang 12mm (or so) MF, which should be great for the landscapes. And I’m getting the kit zoom, of course.

Both 16 f2.8 and 23 f2 are great for landscape with pretty good sharpness between f4 and f11 and very fast AF. They are also small and light

They are under 500$

Samyang is good if you can cope with Manual Focus, it's also the favorite lens for milky way
