I’m getting to the point where I really want a new goto stills/video camera for everyday use and I can’t make up my mind. On one hand I want a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses like the Sony a6300/a6000, on the other hand I wand something compact and pocketable that forces me to think with a fixed prime lens like a Fuji X100 or a Ricoh GR II. If I went with a Sony it would be so I could use my vintage lenses with an adapter and also still build up my Canon lenses as well. I’d probably buy only one or two Sony native lenses. If I went with a fixed lens compact I’d be using it as a second every day camera and using my T2i for video/everything else.

I keep reading reviews and and watching videos and looking at samples but at the end of the day I think I need to try them out to pick one. That brings me back to the title. Do you guys rent gear? If so, where do you rent from? Would you rent everything you’re considering or try to narrow it down first?
