    Please tell us more what you mean by "user friendly". Ease of use by a beginner that takes strait out-of camera images without further development or something else? As for image quality - mostly what is it going to be photographed with the camera? I am asking because there's no such thing as all-round "best" camera. If it is the camera for yourself - judging by your portfolio Olympus E-PL5 would be great for you.

    thanks for replies I give you the example I consider the powershot 220 to be more user friendly than say the canon g series. cant stand evf use bi focal specs so bridge cameras are out . 700d seems to be market leader at that price

    Compacts Fuji x10 or x20, both have optical viewfinder.

    The x10 is still a lovely little street camera Smile

    Fixed focal length lens compacts, either the Fuji x100 or new Ricoh GR, both have decent APS-C sensors.

    Then there are your CSC`s and DSLR`s, but I`m not sure what you really want.

    I would never say that Canon EOS700D is not a great camera, but seeing street photography as your mainstay I would rather think of something more compact - good reference above from Paul, but I would put X20 over X10 for the ease of use.

    Do you use any of these ?

    These both handle the same and share the same controls,

    In that case the X10 or x20 they both share the same 28-112mm f2 - f2.8 lens, so there nice and fast as well.

    The x20 cost a couple of hundred quid more, but its up to you if you feel the extra features are worth the extra money or not.

    You'll maybe want to check first and see what camera shops are left in Edinburgh nowadays. Sad

    Yes that would be a good idea, and call them first to see what they have in.

    Very recently got the x20 and chuffed to bits with it, and very pleased with the advice from Paul and others. Keep it with me all the time.

    Yes its a lovely camera is the x20, not used one yet but I am tempted Smile

    Here is one of those blog type reviews comparing both the x10 and x20 side by side, its a useful read.

    http://www.ronmartblog.com/2013/04/comparison-fujifilm-x20-vs-x10-have-i.html

    A note to the team, thought you had added some kind of pac man game, but its not, any chance of a little hide button, all these smilies are a bit of a pain on the eyes Smile
