Indeed there are a a few win or win choices. I have yet to dive in to the expense and weight of DSLR. $1300 will squeeze a person into a OMD-EM5 or GH3 or A65 or Sony NEX-6 or D7000 or 7D & even a Nikon 1V 2 + FZ200.

Image quality is only one factor. I do not drive anymore so my photographic opportunities are limited, and precious. I carried a one pound FZ150 everywhere with its case on my belt. And it performed beyond expectations. Accurate colors just a little flat. But almost always noisy as the sensor is tiny. There are plenty of folks here on the forum that have DSLR systems gathering dust. I am not a rich man, investing in about a $2000 kit is big bucks to me.

Bugs and hummers in flight is my primary challenge. So PD-AF is a no brainer asset, but a drag to have to carry the gear. My back is good but I have baby brain strokes so my endurance isn't so great.

I will wait until after CES 2013 and CP+ in early Feb to purchase. I just have a gut feeling in this price range what is available now will be the same then.

DPReview did kick out the FZ200 review a heck of a lot faster than the FZ150 and that was helpful.
