New and fun in the Nikon world is the Nikon Coolpix A. The Coolpix A is a point and shoot camera with an APS-C sized sensor. Basically this is a point ans shoot camera with the sensor from a D7000 in it. I am sure this is the camera to get if you are concerned with having the best image quality.
Here is a link to the full line up of Nikon Coolpix cameras.
