Best replacement for Olympus PEN E-PL1?

Hi! First post here.

I am using an Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera to take pictures while I hike, go bike touring, and camp. I love the outdoors, but I also love sharing them and have become the "chronicler" in my group.

There are many things that my E-PL1 does not do. It has a hard time with action shots, so wildlife is very hit or miss. I also have a hard time mastering really high light photos. In addition, there is no viewfinder, and shelling out $250 for one that makes the camera highly bulky is not ideal.

I need a camera that can solve these issues and remain small and easy to pack for backpacking. I was considering a Nikon D-5100 but the large size has me worried. Any suggestions? My price range is under 1000, and I will entertain any brand.

Thank you so much for the help!
