My first camera was a Sony A200 which I loved at the time. I then upgraded to a Canon 7D which I loved but after a while it became to big and heavy and I could never bother to take it out with me so I sold that and purchased a Sony Nex 6 which I currently have and am not too fond of. I use mostly a 50mm f1.8 lens. I looked at buying a new lens but they are just out of my price range. I really want to upgrade back to a DSLR but don't know what to get. I had my heart set on a 6D but am thinking perhaps I should get a cheap camera with better lenses. I will be using it mostly for family snaps at home and want to be able to make my subject pop. I've attached an example of the pics I like to take of my daughter. The only feature I care for is WIFI to easily move the pics onto my iPhone and to be able to get nice blurry backgrounds.
My budget is around $1500-$2000(Australian). Would it make sense to get something as cheap as a Canon 200d with a 135 f2?
I got an EOS 80D with 18-135 USM lens for AU$1699 at JBs when they had a 15% discount period, which they do regularly. Very happy with it. For portraits, Cambuy have the 50mm f/1.8 STM (which I have and like) for AU$155. Also 24mm f/2.8 STM, very sharp and great for landscapes, is AU$209 at Cambuy. Even cheaper if you go grey market. Or if size is an issue the 200D sounds good--same sensor as 80D. Both do wifi, NFC etc.
If you want to go MalVeauX's route, google 5D gumtree. There's one with the old 50mm f/1.8 II for AU$449.
