I can't choose whether I should buy a DSLR or a prosumer/DSLR-like camera and that's mainly because I don't feel like spending a fortune on different objectives to get good pictures. I also like being able to just turn on a camera and not having to change objective if I want to take photos with a lot of zoom or taking macro photos. But I still like all the possibilities you get with a DSLR, especially since I like taking pictures in low light/at night. So now I wonder if you could help me make up my mind.

This is what I want from the camera I'm going to buy:

- Long shutter speeds
- Low noise even at higher ISO numbers
- Not too much shutter lag
- Fast/reliable autofocus
- At least 5 megapixel
- 5x zoom or more (If I buy a DSLR Irealize that the zoom range depends on which objective I buy)

So what do you think? Is it worth buying a DSLR if you're not planning on buying extra objectives in quite a while? Or should I just stick to buying a prosumer camera and if then, which one?

I would say a DSLR would meet your needs.

They have the fastest shutter speeds, lowest noise at high ISO's.

A DSLR can adapt to your growing and changing interests in photography.
