    Yes, define budget. When I was into MFT, there was always a debate of how good Oly video was to Panasonic. Nobody argued that Panasonic had the best video, the argument was how close was Oly to Panasonic. Most felt that Oly was pretty good video wise. I read over and over that Fuji video sucks. Fuji is a still camera, a damn good film camera, but not for the videographer.

    Budget is around $450; as you can see from my wishlist in the first post, all models are around $450.

    I recently purchased the Olympus e-m10, and I really like everything about it. The lenses are great, and I'm having a lot of fun messing with the custom settings on it so it's easier to use (for me). +1 for the Olympus.

    Just recently i purchased Sony Alpha 3500 which is similar to old Alpha 3000. As far as i am concerned, I am a beginner in photography and with the help of this camera i am quite satisfied. The Still Picture and Video capturing is sufficient for me.
    anyways you can google it.

    The Samsung NX2000 has a lot of lens noise while it is focusing, so unless it takes an external mic it`s not any good for video, it takes excellent pictures and you can set a minimum shutter speed say 1/125 which is fast enough to capture most photo`s sharp, but the touchscreen can be not very sensitive at times.

    The Nikon S1 takes some very nice photo`s but it`s only 10mp and IS depends on the lens, the build quality is not so good, but the built in flash can be bounced.

    I have not tried the other two,

    John.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I also have a D90 (horrible video quality IMO, so much that I bought a P&S with HD video just because of that) but I find the bulk more and more annoying when traveling. I would like to be able to use the Nikon lenses I have, but from what I hear Nikon mirrorless are not good?

    Focus system, the compactness, image quality against the small sensor - nikon's strengths
    If you have enough money go for Panasonic if you need good video quality. I didn't afford it so I got the best deal I found on Black Friday. D90 is pretty good on video if you have patience. read this article and you'll learn to take better video with d90: Nikon D90 Video Review
