The best camera is the one you always have with you. For most people that is their cell phones. They take great photos now days! For awhile I used my cell phone on a daily bases when I didn't have my DSLR with me. Unfortunately the lens on my phone shattered!
I wanted a small camera I could easily carry that was more then a Point N Shoot. Mirror-less is doing really well so I made a small purchase to get one. It is not the latest or greatest but it does a great job. I only have the kit lens it came with but it is a Sony NEX series with a ASPC size sensor. Good enough for me to carry on a daily bases!
Here is a few test shots I took the other night.
