Right now the current state of digital photography is very mature.
There are a number of different brands to choose from. All of which will get you excellent results.
The current favorites are Sony for their sensor technology.
The other brands out there are not able to quite get the same amount of high exposure settings without a ton of noise.
However Sony cameras are kind of famously a pain in the ass to use.
On the other end we have Canon which makes everything from high end pro cameras to $400 APSC beginner cameras. Canon stuff is really easy to use and get results. The full frame 6D and 6DII are very good. But it's hard to justify spending so much on a full frame with so few AF points and comparatively miserable dynamic range and high iso perfromance.
I'd throw another hat in the ring and point out the Fujifilm XT20 and X2pro. Their Xtrans sensor technology is pretty good. Garnering full frame-ish performance from a smaller body with an APSC sensor. Their sensor already has a filmic look, and their cameras are very handy and ergonomic compared to NIkon, Olympus and Sony cameras of the same size and style.
(The Canon mirrorless are probably more ergonomic, but are kind of clunky for a small mirrorless?)
If I had to buy right now I'd get a Sony A7 or A7II and tough it out with the menus.
Or grab the best Fuji I could afford.
I've been a Canon person for a while, their lenses are first rate! But their cameras seem to be outdated, and Canon is content to roll out updates to their product line at a snails pace.
