Check out the Olympus PEN cameras. I looked at the E-PL1 for my wife. I wouldn't mind it myself if I needed an alternative to my DSLR. It is the same concept as the NEX-5. Small body with interchangeable lenses (micro 4/3rds, so more options), built-in flash, hot shoe for external flash. The settings and menus are geared more toward point and shoot users looking to get the advantages of a DSLR without the bulk or complexity. If you want controls that are similar to a DSLR the E-P1 and E-P2 might be better. They're a little bit more expensive though. I haven't handled either of them so I can't really speak for the quality. I was pretty impressed by the E-PL1 though.
