My pro friend, that gets 100% of his total income shooting landscapes for publication, uses a Nikon D7100. These are PUBLISHED landscapes - every month. It really is not the camera, but the shooter. Good luck, and be prepared for LOTS of work and many failures. It comes with the territory.

Indeed, 24mp could even be regarded as overkill for 16" x 20" prints but, within reason, the more pixels the better. It will also allow you to crop fairly heavily if you don't quite get the composition right.

The "kit" 18-140 is pretty good but, as others have noted, to get the best out of such a superb camera, better lenses in due course would be a benefit. Having said that, I've printed to 18" x 12" with excellent results.

So, to answer your question, unless you need a FF camera, the D7100 is as good as it gets. If you don't know if/why you might need FF, then basically you don't need one.

Get the D7100, learn it inside out and you won't be disappointed. Most failures will be you, not the camera. Good luck whichever way you decide.

Regards

John
