There are a lot of great cameras out there. A landscape painter friend of mine uses a Canon g1x. It's 13 mp but fast and sharp. Very compact. About $700 or less. Full frame is great if you have lenses already. Otherwise not such a big deal. I have a smallish Nikon D90 for riding around in the truck. My iPhone which does most of the work lately. I use a full frame Canon for work around the studio because I hav an investment in lenses from early EOS days. Save some money on cameras and buy some nic Rapheal linen or Rosemary brushes.
