Yes, 11-16 zoom. I like Canon and had the 1000D before this but open to changing, just haven’t tried any other makes though.
Looking at about £1000 (think that’s about $1200).

Also not particular about viewfinder or mirrorless - as long as it takes good quality travel pics and is light.

Thanks for taking the time to reply and the recommendations!

The 70D is 755 grams and the SL3 is 449 grams and the M6II is 408 grams, so you would save a lot of weight with either one. Those are the lightest Canon APS-C options that I know of. The M6II has the advantage of 32.5 mp, so that's a plus if you need to crop a lot.

The Olympus E-M5 III is 414 grams, about the same as the M6II. I don't how the weight of the Olympus lenses compares.

With mirrorless, you may notice some lag with the electronic viewfinder.
