    My Photography is comes from travelling and mostly focused on travelling.
    I have Sony Hx200v since last 3 years and now want to some upgrade but not want something bulky.
    I want something like Sony a6000 ,
    Focus on small size and easy to carry during travelling......
    Please give your valuable suggestions.. ... Thanks

    If you have the budget and can wait for a little while, then get the Sony A6500. It is a fantastic mirrorless camera.

    I guess it should be around 75-85k initially.

    Aren't the lenes of these mirrorless cams as large as normal dslr lenses? So the size reduction in the body size gets negated to a large extent.

    Yes, and that is why image and video quality is the same as well. Having said that, entry level lenses aren't that big, both in the case of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. A micro four-third camera would be lighter and easier to carry. However, it won't be able to compete with A6500 in image and video quality.

    Landscape photography can be done with a single lens, and the 16-50 lens A6xxx series comes with, is good enough. Having said that, adding a good quality ultra wide angle and telephoto lens to the mix would be a good idea as well. Expect to spend almost the same as the cost of body or more, on these two lenses.

    If you do not wish to do that, you can always opt for a cheaper body and spend more on lenses. Lenses in any case are better investment.
