I have been asked that dreaded question….. , "can you recommend which camera I should get?"

So, if money is no object what would your response be? Here is a list of criteria/considerations as emailed to me:

* An all round camera for holidays / events / social
* Easy to use
* Really good quality lens – with good zoom (optical – not just all digital)
* Auto everything
* Good for face shots and "posed people" as well as maybe action shots from holiday
* Good for all lighting conditions (sun / beach / dinner / evening)
* Not too big / heavy
* No need to have ability to change lens
* No need for video
* Any accessories they should get

I'm actually thinking about suggesting a couple of cameras as there really is no one stop shop, any thoughts/suggestions would be most welcome…
