You can afford a DSLR; there are a few that you could get for under $500 with a kit lens. You can even get a DSLR with two lenses for close to $600. Or you do not like the size?

I have never seen one. I have seen some micro four thirds for $650 with a basic lens, but not a dslr. But yes to your last question. I am just as likely to take a macro of a flower as am to take shot of a deer 300 yards away and then shoot a panorama. Not mention a campfire shot at night without a flash, I have never owned a dslr, but from what I have read, I would need a bunch of lenses to do all of the above. I don't want to lug 30 pounds of camera equipment around. If I could get a single lens for dslr that would do all the things the lens on the HS20 can do, I would be very happy with a dslr.
