Thanks for the input guys. Budget wise I guess I could go all the way to 2500 dollars if I am sold on a particular device for my particular usage.

I have read a bit on the different camera systems in here but I havent and dont have many opportunities to try them out now either so I will have to take a chance eventually.

Perhaps I am looking for you experienced users to recommend a few systems for me under 2500 dollars including lenses for my usage. It can be a lot cheaper aswell if you think I wont notice too much difference as a beginner in my work.


I'd suggest a D750 and Nikon f/2.8 105mm. It'll get you excellent dynamic range (low light performance) and extremely close to your subject. Fits in your price range.

That would have a very narrow/shallow DOF and no 4K video (which he specified he desired).

A smaller sensor will give deeper DOF (m4/3, 1"-type, 1/2..3")
