Prospects for a compact FF landscape camera (fixed lens)?
Mar 13, 2014

I have a 5DIII, and I'd like to do more landscape photography, but it is too cumbersome for me to carry all the gear necessary for good landscape photos:

  • 5DIII
  • Lens (Canon 17-40mm f/4L for example)
  • Heavy tripod

What I would like is a compact FF camera with a fixed landscape lens. Something like a Sony A7r fixed to a good 17-35mm F/4 lens. The fixed design should allow the overall dimensions and weight to shrink significantly, thus making it easy to carry and possible to use a small/light tripod.

I'm guessing such a camera would be no bigger than the A7r with a kit lens. For example:

Would anyone else be interested in such a camera? I'd pay about $2500 for a small dedicated landscape camera.
