Let me start by saying this is a joint account. The G side of this account is looking to purchase a camera and equipment that are tailored for the use of macros and portraits, but obviously a high quality cam for absolutely everything. RAW is essential. There is no spending limit so literally the best performing camera in terms of quality, ergonomics, user-friendly and all that good stuff is what's needed. In short: What's the best camera out there?? Thanks in advance. P.
