Tripods not allowed. Visiting this ruin involves a reservation and climbing steep ladders and crawling through narrow tunnels. I could have gotten just as good an image from a Olympus or Fuji mirrorless, with less weight and size. In the tunnel, I was proceeding on one hand and two knees, using one hand to hold the camera and keep it from banging on rock.

I use a 17 oz. 4 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 2 3/4" Sony RX1 in these type situations (especially multi-day backpacking trips where size and weight are crucial) and I have been very pleased.  As a plus, you don't lose the option of big prints either with its full-frame sensor and fantastic lens.  The RX1 can be had for decent used prices these days.
