Nobody mentioned the Nikon V1.

My wife moved from a D40 to the V1, and really appreciates the size and how easy it is just to shoot with. The kit lens is fine, the 30-110 (28 -300 mme) is great, and the 18.5 (50mme) is small, fast and excellent. I realize that the Nikon mirrorless gets short shrift on most forums, but for someone who wants something small, cheap, easy to use and with a number of useful lenses, it deserves consideration. Plus it has the fastest AF around. And a built in EVF.

Personally, I usually shoot with my EM-5 and Ricoh GR, but I also have a J3 (which I bought for the 10-100 kit lens at a great price). I gave the lens to the wife, and use the J3 for fun and sideline sports, so I can recommend the N1 series without hesitation to the OP and others like him.
