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.
