Re: Advice wanted: Where to start?

It is indeed an excellent time to be buying used camera gear. In the past 6 months I picked up (all Mint or Mint-) an X-T2, X-H1, 18-55, 14/2.8, 23/2 WR, 35/1.4 and a 55-200 that was bit more loved. Total investment around $3K and I paid on the high side because most of it was seriously like new and all made in Japan. It is so much fun to shoot with.

I also bought an X100F in HK for street shooting but didn't get on well with the rangefinder style so I sold it.  Once I used the X-T2 I never looked back. X-H1 is awesome too, and has IBIS.  You could easily get a mint- X-T2, 18-55/2.8-4 zoom and 35/1.4 for $1200, and it will give you years of shooting pleasure and the image quality you want, in a nice compact package. Add a 23/2 WR for street shooting and you're at $1500.
