One question; what are you going to DO with your photos? Are you making massive prints? Submitting to news agencies? For me compacts meet my needs...Dated but I still feel the same: https://aquabluedrea...l-de-evolution/
If you are shooting a lot of wide angle natural light shots the bigger the sensor the better. If mainly using strobes not such a big issue. Lots of good deals on gear here in the Classifieds.
