Sorry for the delay. Because you are not in the USA, can you tell me in which country you reside so that I can get the model numbers correct for your country.

Ok, for an SLR, take a look at the Nikon D3300. It's a nice compact SLR with an 18-55mm lens. You could probably get yourself a nice 55-200mm lens bundled in also.For Four Thirds, I do like the GX7 but also look at the Nikon 1 J5 For a true compact (smaller sensor than the first two) look at the Canon G1X Those are three I would pick - in order. I would suggest however you go to a High Street store and check the D3300 for size.Please let me know if you have any questions.RegardsSteve
