Alex Ramsay Posted September 3, 2016 Share Posted September 3, 2016 While not a complete Luddite, I'm not good at keeping up with developments. I moved to digital in 2007 when the Nikon D3 appeared - it seemed to me the first digital camera capable of matching and surpassing the quality I'd been getting from 35mm over the previous 30 years (also, of course, I already had the lenses). Since then I suppose 75% of my commissioned work has been shot on this one camera, it's been dropped, rebuilt, and carries on as well as ever. However it is a heavy beast. I've just spent a few days in the mountains carrying it, with a 70-200 and a 24-70. I'm planning a very much longer walk next year and realise that I shall need something much lighter, if I'm to carry everything else I shall need into the wild. Drawing on your collective wisdom and experience, what are your recommendations? I need excellent image quality, of course, lenses to cover 24mm to 200mm equivalent, very good battery life, ideally full frame and an optical viewfinder, though these are not deal-breakers - so what's out there these days?
