Agree with the micro 4/3 format. It gives you many of the advantages of DSLR with exchangeable lenses (not all, as the sensor size is smaller), but in a smaller size and weight. I have the Olympus M5 (the Mark I not the Mark II) and really like it. It is dust and splash resistant which is great for the outdoors. I use it with the M.Zuiko 7-14mm PRO lens (for panoramas) and the 12-40mm PRO (for general purpose shots) and find they work really well on the trail and for multi-day trips
