Recommendation

Looking for a camera to carry with me all the time for street, landscape, travel. I own a Lumix fz2500 for birds, nature and zoom capabilities.  Looking for great image quality. $1500.00 max.

Panasonic FZ2500

How about a large sensor, fixed lens camera?

  • Fujifilm X100V
  • Panasonic LX100 mark II

For an interchangeable lens option in this category, how about an Olympus Pen F body, with either a 17mm lens or one of the smaller zoom options [12-45 f/4 Pro]

There is a built-in conflict here.  Cameras to carry all the time are usually small and light.  Truly great IQ comes in bigger packages.  Links for lots of opinions -

Mirrorless or compact?

Re: Recommendation

I'd recommend looking between the Fujifilm X100V and the Sony A7C with a compact lens like of the small f/2.8 lenses from Samyang/Rokinon

Re: Recommendation

If the image quality of the Lumix FZ2500 is ok for you, then you are looking mostly for smaller?

Here's a guide for a number of possibilities?
