I was set on getting the Nikon D5500 (or D5600 but didn't see much of a difference) because of the smaller size and it seems to be a great starter camera. I used my moms 2010 Nikon D3000 for years but never tinkered with the settings and what not (used it for family photos). Now, I am reading into mirrorless cameras how they can pretty much match what DSLR's do. The compact size appealed to me and I am not shooting several hundred shots where the lack of battery life would affect me. I basically want something significantly better than what the iPhone offers and a hobby to buy lenses and shoot nature and family gatherings. Any Thoughts?
