I am still keeping and using all of my MFT gear, so no need to debate between systems, but looking to add a FF mirrrorless camera and zoom lens for various reasons. That being said, I haven't really been keeping up with what Sony/Nikon/Canon/Panasonic have been doing so I thought I would ask you guys what you have purchased and why. For my use case, something like the Sony A7III and Sony 24-105mm looks like it would be about perfect, so based on that example, which other body/lens combinations would you recommend I look into? I will never need any lenses for this FF system with a longer reach than the zoom I mentioned and at best would maybe buy a single fast prime to go along with the zoom. For budget I would say keep in under 3k for body/zoom lens.

Personally I hate Sony color and I have owned 5-6 different Sony cameras (4 FF) and I sold them all.

This is not what you are asking, and not within your budget, but for me, I think the only other system that makes sense to complement MFT would be medium format. However medium format is heavy and the lenses are through the roof cost wise.

Surely colour rendering is down to the converter though and if you shoot raw? For example I use Olympus and love the "colours" but only if I use Olympus Workspace as it's utilising their colour rendering. I import into Lightroom and the colours are disgusting and have to adjust and make presets to get a decent base.

It's all in colour calibration, no?

I’m unfamiliar with the science, however Fuji (distinguished by chemical expertise) have mentioned colour-filter pigmentation, and the control of cross colour casts and reflections. Panasonic colour improved significantly when they changed AR coatings and had been in R&D sensor projects with Fuji. Fuji have been working on pixel membranes for better colour input precision and accuracy.

How all this fits together, I don’t know, but the colour science has a significant analogue or hardware dimension, not mere software adjustment.

Cool so what you’re saying is this particular colour science that Fuji uses is most likely baked into their raw files? It does sound interesting. I’ll have to grab a few samples from here and check it out, I’ve never seen Fuji results before.
