Re: First camera for Portrait shoots

I would recommend trying to hold the camera before purchasing to make sure that you like (or are at least ok with) the ergonomics. There are cameras on your list that I never got along with from an ergonomic perspective.

The cheapest option would be to buy a used fast prime for your current camera (maybe an 85mm?). If you do a good job shopping around the lens would probably hold most of its value if you decided to sell in the future.

If you are itching for a new camera, I would add a Nikon Z6, Canon RP, and maybe a Sony A7rii to your list of options to consider. Add a prime or high quality zoom of your choice (an 85mm prime would work well as a classic portrait lens).
