Entry level mirrorless camera
 
Please help me choose. Main use is for travel and hopefully light enough to bring out everyday for casual shoot.

Have shortlisted a few

Sony A6000
https://www.harveynorman.com.sg/came...l-h-brown.html

Panasonic Lumix GF9K
https://www.harveynorman.com.sg/came...kga-k-blk.html

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II
https://www.harveynorman.com.sg/came...uct-15436.html

Canon EOS-M3 DSLM Camera
https://www.harveynorman.com.sg/came...kit-white.html

Budget is around 1k.

Thanks in advance!

I bought the a6000 few years ago for $640. You probably can get it cheaper now.

Coupled with the sigma 30mm or 16mm f1.4 lens should still be in your budget

people here been raving about the A6000...

kinda agree that its value for money. just not a big fan of sony's camera. but that's just me.

for cannon... i would look at the M5 or the M100. i was looking at both before i decided i prefer the over all feel of a DSLR, basically its more balance in my hands, a mirrorless feels very forward heavy.

EOS M50 Kit (EF-M15-45 IS STM)
This should fit your Budget as starter kit...

Now Canon having cash back promo for other models...

I am ex-user for Sony dslr.... why I moved on from there is because of the Color... either you like it or you hate it.... my opinion here.

Imo the lens makes more of an image quality difference then the sensor. It will be a waste to blow the whole budget into the camera. Personally I will 2/3 of my budget on the lens and accessories.

If you want to make the most out of you camera, learn to use manual mode and shoot RAW. If you want just to press button and get photo, a smartphone will serve you better.

Yes, agree that due to the small size, it feels heavy though it is lighter. I already own a DSLR, Nikon D90 with a couple of lenses. Looking for something more portable but not compromise too much on quality. Thanks for the input!

Agree totally. The lens is very important.. Not new to photography as I have been shooting for several years.. but definitely no expert. :s13:

No love for Olympus camera? Actually that is the one that attracts me the most due to its 5 axis stabiliser for both still photo and video. :D

A Nikon z series camera should be ideal. You can adapt your current Nikon glass with their f to z lens adapter.

Unfortunately their z6 starts at $2.6k

I think there are a few f mount to Sony e mount adapters available if you are interested in adapting your current Nikon lens to a Sony body
but they don't work consistently

Yes, beyond my budget and if use with my current lens, it will become bulky again. :(

Wow.. So many supporters for A6000. Will check it out. :)

My vote goes to the Olympus. Don't just think about the kit lens, but as your photography grows in future, are the better lenses also suitably small for you? Olympus has a big range of high quality and compact lenses from wide to super telephoto. I don't think the Sony APSC or Canon EF-M range can compare.
