Wow you have $5k of budget to start a hobby?

Budget is open-ended, I'm trying to get a feel for what kind of camera I even need. I would say I wouldn't spend over $5k as I'm just starting out and it's only a hobby and that would include some lenses and accessories to get me started.
If you have that kind of money, then you should consider the X-T2 and like 3-4 lenses that will fill all your needs. You'll have money left for a tripod too.
Trust me that once you have used a good EVF, you'll hate going back to an OVF. That's one big advantage of mirrorless over DSLR, for me anyway (I can't function without a viewfinder).
Or the Sony A7R III but that'll leave you with only 1 lens for your budget.
Yeah, by editing, I meant like adjusting the shadow, highlight, white balance & such. I'll never edit something like adding a sunset lighting effect on a picture taking in the middle of the day.
