Trouble is, she'll never get to use it  :grin:

I don't see how this is an issue?
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

I would second the Fuji, but I wouldn't buy from Digital Rev, a lot of the stuff they send to the UK (they are based in Hong Kong) gets stuck in customs, just ask Horney.

Fair point - it was the first link I came to.

Have you looked at the compact system cameras?
My wife just got a Nikon 1 J2. It was £140ish from the John Lewis clearance. It's pretty decent, light and easy to use and it's got enough manual features to keep me happy and produces raw files that I can chuck into Lightroom.
(I would have preferred a Fuji X-M1 or X20 but this was a bargain).

Or you could look at the Canon EOS M, then you can use an adaptor to put your EF lenses on it.

I have to admit I was looking at a Canon M recently as a cheaper backup as there are loads on eBay. Redundancy soon though so spending on luxuries is curbed.

Now: Mk7 R, 5dr, DSG, Limestone Grey, 19" Pretoria's, Nav Pro, DCC, Winter Pack, Keyless, Mobile Prep and Reversing Camera.
Gone but not forgotten: Mk6 GTD, 5dr, Manual, Tornado Red, 18" Vancouvers, RCD510 + Dynaudio + DAB, Cruise, Winter Pack, Luxury Pack and TPS.
