Thanks for that, @buddingphotographer. Good thought on waiting a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal! I know she wanted to get it to give him for a special occasion, so I’m not sure she’ll want to wait but I can certainly suggest that to her.
Thanks also for that info about mirrorless cameras! Helpful to consider.
Would be interested to hear a little more elaboration on your thoughts on a bridge camera vs DSLR. 🙂
