Used to Portrait photography and want to enter in the birdwatching world

Hello you all,

my first time here, hope I am doing it the right way.

A bit of context, I have loved portrait photography for years - used both DSLR and analogic cameras for that, mostly 50 f 1.4/2.8 lenses, and have had many cameras and lenses.

For the last 3-4 years I kind of lost interest in photography and now I am back - and with only an old canon a-1 analogic for now.

I am looking for a mirrorless camera that I could have lenses for both portraits but also to become - who knows - a beginner bird photographer.

I would prefer not to spend a lot on the camera so I can have 2-4 lenses for different scenarios.

Was looking at some:

- The M50 looked good for a beginner, and would also have the possibility of choosing between many lenses. But the battery life and quality seem to be not the best.

- The TX-3 also looks good, but a bit more expensive and especially expensive if I want to go deep into birdwatching as they don't offer many macros.

- Also saw some of the sony ones, but wonder about their cost + cost of lenses. Seems a bit too much just for a hobbyist.

Would love any feedback/tips on a camera + lenses that would make sense for my use case without cost a fortune.

Hope this is enough info.

Thanks a lot
