Maybe a compromise is in order. You will not get a veru good "photographer" quality from a high end P&S ....and at the same time, you might experience a lot of frustations with An high end DSLR.

so, why not going for the middle road? Think about the Olympus OM-D EM-5 which will give you an high FPS (up to 9 fps), high ISO capabilities, a bunch of fun modes and a decent price for DSLR quality.

Go with the 12-50mm kit (which gives you Macro capabilities) and add somthing like the 40-150 (Olympus), 45-200 (Panasonic) or up to 300mm by Olympus and you will get a lot of distance reach ... For close or under 2k $

Read some reviews .... You never know!

Gears: Olympus Gears including E-620, OM-D E-M5 Mark II and E-M1 MK 1 with 14-150mm Mark II, 12-40mm f2.8, 15mm f8 cap lens, 60mm Macro, 25 and 45mm f1.8 and MMF3 4/3 adapters. On the 4/3 side: 9-18mm, 35mm Macro, FL-36R and FL-50. Also Rokinon mFT 7.5mm f3.5 Fisheye and 85mm f1.4, Pentax 50mm f1.7 with K to m4/3 adapter, Olympus OM 200mm with OM to m4/3 adapter ... and it is more than enough ... I hope!
