Another pea on the same pod. :)

What piqued me with the Sony's are the availability of small and WR primes (35/1.8, 55/1.8 & 85/1.8).
Maximizing the size and weight advantage of a mirrorless system while having SR, WR and perhaps can use the slight AF speed advantage but with a huge additional cost.

I know it is a Pentax forum and I have expected replies. I have been here for quite sometime and have valued the folks (some) here with their principles in photography.

I can settle for a KP plus DA 20-40 +*55 and call it quits. But the FF itch is still with me. (I preferred details in photos but there is my alter ego that is sooo into bokeholic. :P)

A close friend is offering me his pre loved A7Rii for 1k. It's like a knocking opportunity for me.

Assuming one could build his first FF system from the ground and both can be had for the same price (1K-ish USD)

Which road should you pick?

For non pro work (landscape, family, etc.)

Thank you in advance

Thanks Mike, but my reason for buying the M6 + 22 is to have a 35mm everyday camera that is cheap, pocketable, tilt screen, wifi and paired with a fast lens and has decent AF. I always love the combo of my K-30 + DA 21 back then but it was too heavy and bulky for such set-up. :)

I dunno if this is a good place to ask if to buy or what, but a local Pentaxian has listed a rather rare Sigma 85/1.4 in K-mount, comes with both hoods and caps for a roughly $500, Yay or Nay?!

Problem is, I am abstaining myself from any Pentax product. :) and I just bought a Canon EOS M6 + EF-M 22mm/F2 for just about $600

I think both Canon and Nikon are seeding bodies and lenses everywhere (planting more user base) in order to cull their old mount system in about 5 years. They looked really funny since they are now being dragged by Sony and others in the MILC hype.

I do, :) as a matter of fact, I just bought the combo (M6, EF-M 22mm f2 lens in transit). I always loved the DA 21mm f3.2 in Pentax, bought it twice, sold it twice too. I told myself that if am going to purchase that damn lens that has to be paired with a smallish camera with a selfie screen that is nice for walk around, travel and can take family/life snaps. Canon's dual pixel AF is speedy for my need (as a dad photographer).

I was able to try the combo from a local store and I was smitten by the size, handling of the camera and the lens itself.

Not many awards for DSLRs since most camera makers didn't release any except Nikon.

I hope the award given to the EFM 32 f1.4 lens inspire Canon and its APSC mirrorless shooter. 😉

Thank you Mistral, JPT and kwb.

How come PFís interview results looked so bleak compare to this? Did PF didnt do their homework? I donít think so.

But these are just roadmap speculations (not official), arenít they?

Like other Pentax users, I have been moaning for fast and WR 35mm efl. The DA 21mm (For FF we have FA31/35 and the Sigma 35) is superb but I am wanting a bit more. Pairing it with a camera body that has some Pentax DNA in terms of IBIS and WR. I also like the idea that LCD monitors should have a degree of flexibility. (fully articulating is better for selfies)

My options are either going
Fujifilm
X-H1 + XF23/2... and then add other lenses as needed i.e. Fujifilm's 56/1.2!

Sony
@6500 + Zony 24/1.8... and then add other lenses as needed i.e. Sigma 16/1.4 and 56/1.4 or the Sony 85/1.8

With the two system above, I think I can have my fast 35mm efl, WR and IBIS while achieving a faster AF than any Pentax(?) and with some degree of LCD flexibility.

My main purpose is to have a family camera that I can brought along travels and some life events specially during holidays. But going FF is tempting too now that I have manage to purged most of my lenses. :lol:

Glad to herar that the X-H1 is doing good for you.
