On Mirrorless Roundup 2011 article (429 comments in total)

Please help me select a mirrorless camera (or DSLR or high-end P&S).

I've assiduously read this article and the reviews on dp review and still am confused about the best choice for me.

I want to move up from an ancient P&S, a Minolta Dimage XG. It had an OV and was light but also had many problems.

Here are my parameters:
- My primary, although not exclusive, need is to take pictures while hiking trails like Mt. Whitney or Mt. Rainier. So I need to take both vista shots (wide angle) and close ups (zoom) if a bear or moose comes by.
- One lens is desirable on the trail because I tend to keep moving, especially if there is a guide.
- The camera must be very light because the trails can be steep.
- I need an OV because I wear distance glasses and the display screen is hard to see unless I remove my glasses.
- Pocked size and one-handed size is optimal.
- Fast AF and minimal lag is need for ocean or other action shots.
- Activity in cold environments is desired.

Thanks for your help.
