I use Nikon gear and have some money invested in the equipment in order to get sales quality images as well as meet the acceptance standards here on airliners.net. On the other hand, I've got some decent images using my iPhone as well. Any DSLR body will do as will a mid priced zoom lens. If you're looking to capture images from airshows or do a lot of low light photography, a more expensive body and lens become necessary to obtain high quality pictures. I can't speak for other brands, but in the Nikon family, the D3400 and Nikon's 70-300mm lens might be a decent combination to consider. Perhaps some Canon or Sony users will weigh in on their views as well.

The Sony A5000 is the world's smallest APS-C sensor camera and it's a heck of a lot smaller than even the Canon EOS 100D.
There are advantages to mirrorless... and I'm not a fan boy as I use both a Sony CSC and Canon DSLRs. One great benefit of mirrorless is that a lot of the lenses fit right through chainlink fences - given increasing security worldwide it's a huge advantage.
All I'm saying is investigate mirrorless because you may be missing out by not doing so. It's not for everyone but it works for me. Even micro 4/3 cameras with the latest technology can produce results similar to those of a DSLR.
