Re: Best Lightweight, Compact Landscape Kit

M43 has substandard image quality, and as noted, is not that much more compact than a Sony system. Fuji is the best APS option, but also not more compact than Sony.

The option that would make most sense to me would be to get a good compact prime wideangle lens in FE mount. Zeiss and Voigtländer have more than a few. Otherwise get a Leica M mount lens like the outstanding Zeiss ZM 35mm f/2.8 C-Biogon with an adapter.

If the OP really hates Sony ergonomics, Nikon and Canon have their own FF mirrorless systems. The next generation Canon R bodies should finally be up to the high standard of their RF lenses.

The upcoming Sigma FF system is going to be very compact with outstanding image quality. It won't be cheap, and this being Sigma, expect operational quirks.

Finally, it's worth considering compact fixed-lens cameras like the RX1RII, Leica Q2, Ricoh GRIII or even Sigma DP1 Merrill.
