System downgrade?

Hi all,

I have a conundrum and would like to get some thoughts.

We have a baby on the way and I need to free up some cash from my camera setup.

Also due to carrying a whole heap of extra stuff around I'm looking for a lighter setup.

I feel like going fixed lens would restrict me too much but might be the most effective stop gap.

I am currently quite deep into the Sony FE line with an A7iii. I also have a few manual adapted lenses (C/Y Zeiss mainly).

I hear that kids move around sometimes so a decent AF system would be a must.

Video,  I haven't really used so far so happy to get into a system where that isn't the main focus.

In my head there are 3 main options.

1. Sell all my lenses and keep a skeleton A7iii setup, perhaps just my samyang 35mm 2.8/other small primes.

2. Downgrade to APSC either staying within Sony (Probably 6500) or moving over to Fuji (XT30?).

3. Go super light and trade everything in for a single fixed lens setup, I used to have a Fuji x70 and loved it to bits. Perhaps an X100F or GRiii.

I'm know I'm not a good enough photographer that APSC/Full frame will restrict my enjoyment of photography or my final results but don't want to go back to m4/3 tbh.

All thoughts welcome,


Fujifilm X100F Ricoh GR III
