The best equipment is the equipment you have with you when that special moment occurs.
They say the bigger the better.
Well,... I find the Nikon D7100 plus 2-3 good lenses a good compromise.
It all fits in a rucksack with a flash and few filters, and a bottle of water.
...After a while you get used to carrying it all around.
For longer Hikes the micro four thirds Olympus OMD EM5 ii and 2 small bright lenses are easy to carry and have excellent quality!
And then, when you just happen to be in the right place at the right time and the shutter clicks, it was all worth it.
