I've got two cameras currently and would like to have just one that combines the best of both.
One is a second hand Nikon D200 with a very bright 1.4 50mm Nikon prime lens (in reality the depth of field is so small at anything less than 1.8 that I never use it) the other an aging Canon Powershot G10.
The Canon has good manual control and useful auto settings and is compact but doesn't have the control over depth of field that the Nikon does and while the shutter lag is OK, it's still frustrating. The lag as the picture saves is also very annoying.
The Nikon is a fabulous camera but it's big, heavy and consequently intrusive, i.e. it's not particularly discrete.
The money no objective choice would be a digital Leica range finder but that's so far out of the ball park it's a joke.
I really like the Fuji range but the X-E1 and especially the X-Pro 1 are still very pricey. The X100 looks just about in budget but again it's right at the limit.
I want the camera for every day use, lots of family portraits and days out; I'd like to get the depth of field control for portraits without the bulk of a DSLR.
What are peoples' recommendations.
