Which smaller camera if money no concern?
Mar 27, 2012

I currently have a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon G7. I rarely use the G7, but I'm getting tired of lugging around the 5D + lens weight on long hikes. This Summer we're doing a long (100-mile) hike in Europe (I live in US Pacific Northwest) and I don't think I want to bring the 5D. So I'm trying to decide if a Sony Nex-7 or Canon G1 X would be a better fit for this trip and hiking in general? I know here in the Northwest there will always be times when I want the 5D and 17-40 lens. You need the wide range when you're close to a waterfall and there's no other place to get a good shot from. Has anyone else gone through this decision process? Any thoughts?

Thanks, Jeff
