A few factors why people say one or the other
-brand history
-lack of current knowledge
-brand loyalty
-buyer appreciation (or remorse)
-price, it’s why we’re here right?

Ergonomically, I recommend people go to a physical store and handle them. What feels good in your hands? Put it up to your face. Are you a viewfinder shooter or LCD screen? Then factor prices. If you get into it, it’s a lot more than that initial body and kit lens.

Listen, but don’t let the salesperson influence you, even they can steer you towards what they like and not necessarily what is best for you, or try to sell certain stock.

Yes, smaller mirrorless cost more especially if you get into more lenses, maybe it’s worth it, maybe not, consider the size of your bag or backpack. Use or lose it. If it’s not on you, you can’t take pics with it.

It’s not the end of the world if you buy a camera and realize another type is better, we can all adapt.

We all have individual preferences, there’s no right answer, and we’re all coming from different budgets.
