Now, it is understood, that those cameras may be too large and/or too expensive for some serious landscape photographers, but there are other, smaller, less expensive tiny sensor digicams that could produce equal results. You might have to give up the EVF and have a somewhat reduced zoom range though.
Now, to get serious. I haven't seen anything written about how David Muench makes use of the digicams that he has been using the last few years for his serious landscape photography. My guess, just a common sense guess, is that he uses the lowest ISO setting and shoots raw. And, of course, he is probably more concerned with the final result than worry himself to death about specs and the minutiae of all the technical angst and hand wringing that is popular these days.
It sure would be cool to see some of his prints at a gallery.
