Just some furhter clarification. I would not mind using the flash so would that mean the kit lens 18-55mm would be OK for the Nikon? I am just not that happy with the Z1 and would like to get something that takes great photos indoors with minimal user adjustments as my wife seems to take most of the photos. Zoom is important.
I would ideally like an all around camera and if it not an SLR than that is fine but I am in not in a position to purchase multiple lenses at this time.
Perhaps a PowerShot S2 IS?
