Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M)
Nikon D610
Amazing state of the art fast superzoom lens combined with the best 1" sensor out there makes for an amazingly good do everything camera without the compromise you get using superzoom lenses on DSLRs and Mirrorless cams ... the lens on this this was built to a size and Quality rather than down to a price and it shows ... The Mk4 is the same camera with faster PDAF Focussing , for those who don`t need the speed, a used Mk3 at a fraction of the cost is a real Gem . 4.5 stars because of the amazing Price / performance ratio
Liked the M100 very much but getting more long sighted as I get older so need an EVF, having this opens up far more usable lenses especially EF mount ones . if the M50 had been just an M100 with an EVF / Hotshoe, twisty screen and a mode dial I`d have been happy but it really is more than that, button customisability , speed, AF in low light, better metering etc all add up ..... Doubles up as a replacement for the sadly Demised G1X Mk1 too which had done nearly 50,000 shots in 8 years for theatrical costume photography ..
WORK CAMERA - Cheaply Bought Ex-Studio camera with high mileage but near mint condition from a shop with warranty . got to replace all the old tired falling to bits clunkers I use as backups with one useful (as in 24Mp FF) camera at lowest cost...... to say this exceeded my expectations is an understatement, I knew the IQ would be the same as the D750 but with the added bonus of no shutter shock ! but didn`t expect the AF to be even remotely good. centre point is as accurate as the D750 even in low light - I was expecting D7000 randomness .. 4 stars because it ought to have had the Full AF system but is a superb camera all the same. great value used ,
Nikon D850
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
WORK CAMERA - IMO the current state of the art for a work DSLR for general use - AF is based on the D5 so better than the D810, tougher & handles better than any mirrorless loaded up .. XQD slot for Zero RAW + JPG buffer issues and UHS2 for SD . a camera to take a beating day in day out for years .....
What was a Jaw Droppingly expensive update on the famous EM1 is now a sweet spot (along with the Pan G9) for a professional level M43 body .. Cheap used in UK shops because the market is flooded with them and even better than when they were £2000 at launch because Firmware 3 updated the camera to a degree only seen by Fuji before ..... Is a new MK3 worth almost £1000 more than a tidy used Mk2 ? , you`d have to need some of those esoteric features a heck of a lot to justify it ...... 1/2 star lost due to 1 slot only being UHS2 and using an LCD for the EVF not an OLED
