DSLR's don't lack compactness. No enthusiast or beginner photographer needs compactness, otherwise they would use mobile phones. Mirrorless aren't actually compact either, because they need lenses too.

Lbeck438: Own d60, thinking of trading it in on a up grade model, which model would someone recommend .

D3300, D5300, D5500, or, more expensive, D7200. They are all great shooting machines for stills. If video is important, try Canon too.

GarysInSoCal: Amazing how the D7100 got a 'Gold Award' while the D7200 got Silver. The D7200 has a much bigger buffer, better low light autofocusing, WiFi, longer battery life, sharper and cleaner Expeed 4 image processor, and better high ISO performance with an extended range... ALL features that prevented me from purchasing the D7100. Thank you Nikon for all the upgrades I cared about and wanted to see... ;)

I can't agree with Richard for two reasons. If other competitors come with great achievements other than those that characterize a good DSLR they simply should not be taken into consideration for a DSLR Gold award. For instance: I buy a DSLR because I want to see thru a competent optical viewfinder and everything is TTL, a stellar image quality, great lenses for photography, not because it has a better auto-focus in video mode. For that reason I shall buy a video camera which is far more competent (has instant focus, 20x optically stabilized lens and things like that) and is cheaper. A mirrorless camera is not a competitor for a DSLR for Gold award just because it has a touchscreen and video capabilities and other gimmicks like that, but the viewfinder has parallax error, doesn't show depth of field, has a very limited choice of lenses and the photos have obvious less quality. These are consumer ratings, not professional, or even enthusiast ones.
