MIcro Four Thirds is very appealing due to size and lenses but really the images from those cameras are good just not great. Which is why i was thinking of DSLR's

When paired with good glass they are comparable to a DSLR. I would bet that given top end glass you could not tell the difference in the photos compared to an APS DSLR. Bear in mind that you must use a larger aperture to get the same depth of field for an equivalent field of view. This is because you are using a shorter focal length to obtain an equivalent FOV. The same is true for APS compared to full-frame. It's about a one stop difference for APS.

If you go DSLR route there are some good choices, but then the lenses are considerably larger. It still makes a compact system, but the mirrorless cameras are downright tiny, yet still offer very good performance (those from the best of class that is). The new mirrorless APS cameras are interesting, but not as compact and they lack the variety of lenses available for micro four thirds.

This is a beginners forum. If you are like most of us, any modern higher end camera will have more capability than the person using it. The more I use my equipment the more I realize that the best way to improve my photos is to improve my vision and skill. After that would be to get better glass.
