Mustafa, you might want to read these threads for some advice on cameras:

Personally, I have only used two digital cameras, Nikon D3000 and, my recent one, Nikon D7000 with an older Japanese 50mm f/1.8 lens. 
Good luck with your decision, my friend!  Smile

Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm VR II kit lens as a bundle is my 1st proper camera (DSLR) & its the best thing i ever purchased, good amateurs camera with auto settings' be sure to get a cheap ultra violet lens protector as its a lot cheaper to replace a cover than the lens itself  Thumbsup

Mustafa, if I was starting from scratch on my camera equipment I would be considering the new Sony a7II or a7RII camera. Compact size, full frame and image stabilization built into the camera body.

What do you guys think about mirrorless Samsungs? I'm thinking about getting NX300 or NX3000.

Btw, Mustafa, if budget is no problem that A7RII is badass.

Mirrorless cameras are here to stay and I think a lot of companies will move in that direction eventually. 

There was an article in the magazine Outdoor Photographer:

My Move To Mirrorless

See what drove professional photographer Dan Bailey to set aside his DSLR in favor of a mirrorless system

http://www.outdoorphotographer.com/how-t...rless.html

Personally I shoot a Canon 7D while my dad shoots a Sony mirrorless - if we shoot the same subject we can't tell the difference.

Mirrorless does give you high picture per second burst rates - my camera with a mirror can snap 8 frames a second while some of the mirrorless are 12+ frames a second.

I shoot my kids track and cross country for their school and used to go to the F1 race in Montreal to photograph the cars so I like the high FPS rate on my 7D.

If you are taking still shots - burst rates don't matter.  One thing to keep in mind - if you buy a camera that don't have a full frame sensor - you have to think about the lenses you will buy later.  If you buy cropped sensor lenses and then upgrade the camera to full frame - you would have to get new lenses.  I have a cropped sensor and buy full frame lenses so I don't have to buy new lenses later.

Nikon, Sony, Canon all make great cameras - it comes down to what you want to do with it and what you want to spend.

I use a Nikon D5100. I chose it as it was a much cheaper alternative than the higher end range (like the d7000) yet it has the same imaging processor. It is perfect for my amateur photography and I won't outgrow it anytime soon.

Hi Bob ,
I researched a lot in the past few days and placed an order for Sony a6000 with zeiss lens. I was seriously considering Sony a7 but the size made the decision for me . I understand that a7/7r are full frame . But honestly speaking bob I will not do more than few snaps of my daughter and brush.Plus I wanted something little les complicated .

Maybe I buy 7r after some practice and that's why I bought ziess lens because it support full frame and work with full frame camera.

Very nice choice Mustafa. Were wet shaving has RAD, the photograghy hobby has GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). Wet shaving can be a much cheaper hobby than photography.

The Sony A6000 has blazing fast AF and paired with any of the Sony lenses is a lightweight kit and amazing capable for any type of shooting.  I've also owned and shot with all of the A7 bodies and lenses....great set up BUT the lenses are expensive and not the smallest/lightest when paired with the body....if you need a full frame camera then the A7 is wonderful....if you don't need full frame then I'd look at the A6000 or the newer version which I believe is the A6200 or A6300.
