I shoot with Leica L mount and M mount cameras and, Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. The electronic viewfinder (EVF) in the Leica L mount and, Sony cameras is a game changer, providing accurate exposure and color previews. While gear choice is personal, both these systems meets my professional needs. Build your photography kit gradually, starting with two camera bodies, a 24-70mm lens, and a wide-angle lens. Backup gear is essential for reliability, and incorporating lighting gear is highly recommended.
