There is a great studio shot comparison tool on dpreview but unfortunately it doesn't have any of landscapes - does anyone know of something similar online?

No I don't believe there is. The idea of dpreviews studio comparison tool is to have nearly complete control of the lighting as to make each new model have the same conditions as other models.

That would be impossible if the scene was a landscape.

Dpreviews tool is great for comparing ISO and shadow noise, and the other site's lens compare tool is great for comparing different cameras and lenses for detail retention and fringing. Between the two, just about any comparison one wants to make can be performed.

Thank you.

When you go to the lens comparisons, choose a 2nd lens on the right side, then you can choose a camera that they tested with that. Set up the aperture, etc on both then to compare, just move your mouse over the arrow at the top between the two lenses, and it will switch back and forth so you can compare the corner, center, etc.

It would be impossible to get comparable landscape images unless you did a new set with all cameras as even slight variations in light, weather, and time of day would make enough of a difference to make comparisons ineffective.

I'm pretty sure Steve's Digicams has landscape scenes in their comparison photos.

Thanks for the responses guys and sorry for such a late response! All prices I’ve found are second hand.

CAMERA
As I never use a tripod, I’m guessing image stabilization is important for me (even though most photos will be in good light so can have a fast shutter speed), and will buy a second hand Sony A7II as my camera body for £650.

I agree that hand holding the camera and seeing if I like the feel of it is important. Do most cameras of the same brand tend to feel the same? I won’t have a chance to visit a shop for a couple of weeks, but if I don’t like the Sony feel, my backups are Nikon D750 (£625) or Canon 6D (£500) or 5D Mark II (£369) –but they don’t have image stabilization and are all heavier.

LENS
I’ve been googling, then treating the Dxomark score as a benchmark on how good it is.
I’m still unsure what focal lengh I want – I use my gopro hero 7 a lot which is apparently 16mm, so I’m leaning towards the Sony FE 16-35mm f4 (£789).

Other lenses I’m interested in are Sony FE 12-24mm f4 (£1116) and Sony E 10-18mm f4 (£269). If I were to start at a very cheap lens, to find out what focal length I need, Sony E 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 (£79) could be a good starting point.
Dxomark don’t show all of these lenses for some reason – does anybody know why? Is there a good alternative that can quantify the quality of a lens like Dxomark does?

Finally, this is assuming all Sony E and FE lenses will fit onto the A7II.

Any suggestions on other lenses would be appreciated! Low weight is an aspect I’ve been focusing on also. Thanks :)
