RX100 for landscapes
Aug 14, 2013

I'm having a very difficult time deciding on a replacement camera for a 18 day backpacking trip so I don't have to lug around my 60D....I really want to like the RX100 because everything about it spec-wise is perfect (and everyone raves about it)...but I'm just not sure about it's wide-angle landscapes. I haven't used a point-and-shoot in years I'm so nervous to leave my DSLR behind and sacrifice IQ. I'd love to see some landscape samples that anyone could share!

I'm used to carrying my Tokina 11-16mm which gives me BEAUTIFUL landscapes - so I fear I may be tough to please as I love this lens (but know it's too heavy for me to carry).

Also, what are the options for a CPL for the RX100? I would definitely need one.

And if theres any reason I should be going for the RX100 II over the RX100 definitely let me know!
