On my past day hikes (up to 15 miles with elevation change) I have taken my 5D mark II with 2 lenses and ND filters to capture landscapes. This year I am excited to take my young son on a multi-day backing trip to cover 30-35 miles. Because of his age, I will be carrying most of the camping gear, food, etc. I do not think I will have room for my current set up, so I am looking for advice for the best next-best option to my dSLR. My budget is about $1500, and I have looked into the Canon G1X, Fuji X-E1 with 18-55mm kit lens, Sony RX100, Sony Nex with ? lens, etc. I have also considered taking my 5D mark II with only the 50mm f/1.4 attached, but I am worried about only having one focal length. My priority is high image quality for stills/ landscapes.
I would appreciate any advice or experience from a similar situation. I have attached one of my pics, so you can see what i like to shoot.
