Hi all

I'm trying to find the perfect small camera solution for "adventure" scenarios where I can't feasibly take my DSLR (Nikon D700) due to its size and weight. In these instances, I'm mainly interested in daylight landscapes.

I'd been looking at compacts, but moved on to the Panasonic GF2 + 14mm pancake because of its small size (only marginally larger than a compact), light weight and better-than-compact image quality.

Is there a NEX combo that I should be considering which can match the size of the Panasonic?

You mean something like this?
NEX-5r + 16mm pancake,241.5,ha,t

or this (with a zoom lens option)
NEX-5r + 16-50mm OSS,241.5,ha,t

You could, I guess, spend more money for another camera system or you could start investing in glass. The Olympus 12/2 is absolutely incredible. Equivalent to 24mm in FF, it's great for sweeping landscape scenes.
