Please don't apologize for hijacking the thread.  As a digital newbie I have learned a tremendous amount from reading along with a debate among experts.  I know you all probably don't believe me, but when this started I had only the vaguest awareness that DSLRs even had two kinds of sensors, and knew nothing about how they differed.  I feel much better informed now when it comes to making decisions.

For the record, I haven't entirely made up my mind.  I am still considering a compact camera, the Fuji X20, and an APS-C mirrorless compact system, the Sony NEX, with either a 6 or 7 body, as my move-up from my point and shoot.  But if I do get a DSLR (and most days I lean in that direction), it will be a Pentax, probably a K-30.
