Hello RMSP community,
I am a documentary-style/portrait photographer by heart who is frequently traveling and on the go. I currently own a Canon 5D Mark IV which I know and love deeply, but it gets heavy and bulky to travel with… and honestly feels a little intimidating and sometimes encroaching to stick in someone’s face when I’m traveling and exploring new cultures. The idea of a lighter and smaller Canon mirrorless camera is very attractive to me… although I don’t know much about them yet, and don’t think I would currently be able to afford a mirrorless body as well as RF lenses. I know that I could use my current EF lenses on the mirrorless body with an adaptor, however, I worry that this would defeat the purpose of having something smaller and lighter… and might end up feeling a lot like what I already have. I would love to hear any feedback from those who have experience with Canon mirrorless cameras. Are they worth it? Are there any drawbacks to them vs. say a 5D Mark IV? Do you find that it is actually nicer weight-wise or for travel? Which model do you recommend? Etc.
Any tips or information is greatly appreciated.
