actually prefer to use dslr for street photo.... it just seem faster to view through the real optical viewfinder

and viewing through the viewfinder... is like putting on a mask

I'm using the Samsung NX3000 for the APS-C sensor. Had the Sony A5000 but still prefer NX3000. The WiFi functionality is very convenient when used to transfer pictures to phone.

May I know in what ways other than wifi functionality that you prefer the nx3000 more? I heard all sort of good reviews regarding the sony a5000 or a6000. such as it got electronic viewfinder, sharp enough photos

Fujifilm X100F with a DSLR is a good combo. Everytime is good except the coughing out moola part LOL.

if you don't mind fix lens and no VF, I will recommend the Fujifilm X70 for extreme compact setup.

Just that X70 is a 28mm FF equx framing.

is a fix lens with F2.8.

Unless you are looking for ILC.
