Re: just a tip to above: maybe superzoom is for you

We live in a world full of compromises. Even if such a lens like 16-300mm would exist, it would be big, heavy and expensice and on top of that, the quality wouldn't be good. I can understand that you dont want to switch lenses, but that is none of the reason why interchangeable lens cameras are made for.English is not my native language.

To be more precise - I don't like switching lenses when hiking or bicycling, if possible.

The attraction of a walk-around lens is that it is ready when you need it..  Far too often I am going from wide angle to telephoto and back again.  If I had to switch lenses every time, a lot of the shots would just not happen.

As for the OP - we are getting WAY off topic! - I still think that a zoom lens with a wide range, and a faster (F2 or larger) "normal" lens is the best combo to start with.
