The best landscape kit as recommended by Steve Gosling

Landscape expert Steve Gosling chooses his favourite camera and lenses for minimalist masterpieces...

Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII
"I’ve been using the E-M1 MkII since it first came out at the end of 2016. It’s a rugged, pro spec camera that’s weather-resistant (essential for many of the environments I work in) and, with a 20MP sensor, capable of producing wonderful quality images that I’ve happily printed to 30x20in. The image stabilisation system also enables me to get sharp images in situations where using a tripod is impossible, such as from the deck of a moving ship or on board an inflatable boat in Antarctica."

Zoom lens: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO
"The 12-100mm zoom is my go-to travel lens with a useful focal range from wide-angle to telephoto and a weatherproof design. Combined with the E-M1 MkII it was my most-used optic in Antarctica. I’ve used all the Olympus primes and all the Pro zooms and the quality has never disappointed, yet the 12-100mm seems to be a step up again. I’d say that at f/8 or f/11 it’s the sharpest Olympus lens I’ve used giving crisp, detail-rich images."

Wide-angle lens: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 7–14mm f/2.8 PRO
"The 7-14mm Pro zoom gives a dramatic perspective ideal for landscapes with strong, bold foregrounds. Fitting filters requires a special adaptor (due to the bulbous front element and the petal shaped lens hood), but this sharp optic is well worth the investment."
