A6000 to FF


I currently have about 1 year of experience with the a6000 and it's a great little tool, but as i like hiking, landscape and stuff i find the lack of GOOD aps-c zoom lenses disturbing. I've tried many prime lenses (sigma 19, 30, 60, sony 35, 50) and a couple of zoom (16-50kit, 18-105 and 18-135). The prime are very good but the zoom are quite dark and too soft even stopped down.

When hiking it's a real pain to switch lens every time and even with 3 or 4 primes in my backpack I feel the need to have more focal lenghts.

I've considered to stay within the aps-c line and switch to fujifilm to try the 18-55 but after a "sony tuch&try day" I realized that i like very much the results and the feel of the a7 lineup. But every model untill the mk3 have many cons.

Mk1: no ibis, short battery life, reflections, no uncompressed raw, no weather sealing and some more.

Rmk1: same as mk1 but more pricey.

Smk1: some cons of mk1 and maybe resolution too low.

Mk2: no 4k video (for the money), same sensor as mk1, battery life, high iso performance quite different from the mk3, no uncompressed raw, and maybe some more.

Rmk2: battery life, better high iso than mk2 but not as good as mk3.

I'd like not to spend around 1,5k euro (I live in italy) for a used a7iii becouse all the previous models have some cons.

I can find a used mk2 for about 600/700 euro or a Rmk2 for 1000, but i can't decide if the jump in price worths that much.

I'm probably gonna buy the tamron 28-75 first, or maybe the new sigma 24-70 in case of a "sale".

Dslr are generally too big for me, and i like the evf. Eos r and rp are not my cup of tea.

What should i do? I know fuji aps-c are actually good but i would like to experiment with full frame.
