Looking for a budget mirroless camera 1500 or less but I might go up to 2000 if its has great value. Preferably canon but maybe nikon or sony. But I really need help.

Yikes! That's a wide open question. :-) So many personal preferences. It's a tough choice. I guess it depends how deeply you're invested with glass for any particular mount at the moment. Are you still sharing gear with your brother? ;-)

Full frame or crop sensor?

In crop sensors Canon M50 is well within your price range but I understand that there's an M50 Mark II coming soon. And I've read good things about the M6 Mark II -if you're happy with a camera that doesn't have a built-in viewfinder (I'm not). I don't know much about their full frame cameras as I want to keep my equipment small.

I would love full frame, and ya I need the view finder

Prior models are being marked down. The Sony A7II is $1398 new now. Can get good used ones for around $1100 (at B&H - I'd check Keh.com also). Just noticed that Adorama has one used for $779 (Excellent-minus condition).

If you can wait a couple months I'm sure these will be on sale again for $900-$1000 new, around the holidays (usually some sale events then).

If you want to stay with Canon, you want to go to the RF mount. The M mount is not getting a lot of love these days. Looks to me like it will eventually be orphaned. The stand-out right now is the R6, but that is above what you want to spend, around $2500. The other choice in the RF mount would be the EOS R. That is in your price range at $1800. It's a nice camera, but it is a generation old.

List of FF cameras I compiled on 9/23/2020.

thanks. my 50d is having trouble and glitches sometimes and mirrorless is in my opinion better than dslr

Canon has refurbished EOS R bodies in stock for $1619.

I think I'd just spend the extra $180 and get a new one. I mean, the price diff is negligible at that point. Do they have the same warranty as a new one?

I believe they do. They must meet the same specs as a new camera. I'm guessing a lot of them are just returns which don't even have an actual problem but can't be sold as new ...

ya ill see if I can get a good deal on an r on black friday or something.
10/10/2020 06:55:47 AM · #16
and ill have to get a mount adapter as well for my ef lenses because I know have buying an 1800 dollar camera I'm not gonna be able to just buy a 15-35 rf (or 24-70, 70-200, etc) because they are expensive
10/10/2020 06:59:50 AM · #17
but do you think its worth it to buy an rf lens or should I just get an ef and put the mount adapter on?
10/10/2020 08:00:41 AM · #18
It makes sense to get the adapter and use your lenses you already have for now, then, at a later time, if you feel the need to get new lenses you have the option to remove the adapter and use native lenses as well as the option to use any Canon EOS mount lenses (EF).

I only have 3 lenses: sigma 10-20 4-5.6, canon 50mm 1.8, tamron 28-75 f2.8

The r still has more mega pixels and I mostly just do stills (mostly because my camera doesn't have video)
