I started shooting with an A6000, bought a used M100 just so I could use the 22mm f/2 and finally bought a D750. D750 was an excellent camera but was quite heavy with f/2.8 zoom lenses so I sold it. I also missed nailing focus on every single shot like I did with my A6000.

Right now I think the two year old A7III is the best value for money as it has excellent AF and the most lenses.

However after using my A6000, I am hesitant to go back to Sony ergonomics/UI, even if I feel that the AF has made shooting a lot easier.

That leaves Canon and Nikon. I definitely prefer Nikon's bodies especially the Z5 but I like what Canon has done with RF lenses.

I shoot mainly portraits and family snapshots.

What brand or body recommend?

Canon R5 or R6 is now the "best" -- especially with RF lenses

might depend on what lenses you still have

The problem with trying to identify the "best" camera body is that it is (1) inherently subjective, and (2) inevitably temporary. The "best" -- whatever that means to any given photographer -- is only the "best" until the next one comes along, and that could be from another manufacturer.

Of course, if one prefers the RF lenses, then certainly the R5/R6 are great choices if they fit the budget.
