The fixed lens camera market may be a bit niche, but it’s here that you’ll find some of the best cameras you can buy. Sensors ranging from APS-C to full-frame are designed to candidate their lenses, which cover ranges from 28-75mm equiv., so image quality is top-notch.
This segment includes both pocketable exemplars without viewfinders to ‘best worn over your shoulder’ cameras with unique or ultra-high-resolution EVFs. There’s a gigantic spread in bonus, as well. The Fujifilm X70 and Ricoh GR II can be had for under $700, while the Leica Q sells for around $4250.
For those who want to ‘zoom with their feet,*’ here are the fixed-lens cameras we mull over are worth a look:
- Fujifilm X70
- Fujifilm X100F
- Leica Q (Typ 116)
- Ricoh GR II
- Sigma dp Quattro series
- Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II
*Obviously it isn’t the same as actually zooming.
