wats0n: I really love what Canon is doing, but at this point I am not sure if "I can go back". I tried Fuji a few years ago after spending a majority of my photography years with Canon (did a brief stint with Olympus and Sony). Honestly Fuji is the system to beat these days, it's a combination of the best output on the market combined with superb "Leica Like" glass and a real "fun factor" missing from photography. That being said I am glad Canon is making a come back...

Shooting Leica glass adapted on an APS-C body without proper micro-lens setup on the sensor, and not seeing 25% of the frame that the lenses render is not seeing what the Leica glass achieves. Leica's M glass only performs really excellent on Leica's own M bodies. If you want to see what the glass achieves on digital you have to use the native system. Leica M glass don't adapt well, this is common knowledge. And any FF lens on APS-C is like throwing 25% of the character down the drain.

Sorry to burst your (and many Fuji boys) bubble, but there is nothing "Leica Like" with Fuji's XF glass. Try a Lux 50 ASPH, APO-Cron 50, Noctilux 0.95, Lux 35 ASPH FLE, Lux 28 ASPH, Cron 35 ASPH, or any Leica glass and compare it yourself, and you will cleary see that the Fuji's look rather flat, dull, lacking in micro contrast, and just no way remotely in the same class at all. I've tried all the XF glass, and all of Leica's most popular high-end glass, and there is NOTHING about the "Fujicrons" that are anywhere near a Summicron.

roteague: I see nothing in the a7R IV that would lure me away from the Z7.

The Z7 is a superior landscape camera. It’s properly weather sealed (proven), it has a lot of features built-in, like the simple ability to choose aspect ratios, focus stacking mode, and more. And it has a significantly better rear LCD, and far more flexible shooting options. Also, the Z lenses are better than the equivalent Sony lenses, especially in regards to flat field focus and edge sharpness, all of which is really important for landscape photography.

You should consider that the decision is made by journalists and tech-people that are unsuccessful photographers. I'm sure not even one of them have made a living of landscape photography, and yet, they are trying to tell you which camera is best suited for it. Food for thought.

AKH: No, the Sony is not the best camera for landscape photographers. Generally Canon and Nikon has much better color rendering.

And much better and proven weather sealing.
Which is also very important for landscape photographers.

No worries, I have tons of the original Acros 100 in the freezer.

Lets go with:
RealPro.
ProPro.
Maestro.
Mastah.
Grand Master (oops, taken by Sony).

Ugh... I just started feeling a little bit more stupid.
