Okay, not exactly a compact but one of the most compact "full frame" bodies around, the Nikon D600 and 24-85mm lens kit just had a huge price drop via instant rebate, which brings the combo down to $1996.95 at online retailers. The lens alone sells for $600. Some direct links: Adorama: Nikon D600 Digital Camera with 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens B&H Photo: Nikon D600 Digital Camera with 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens Amazon: Nikon D600 with 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR AF-S Nikkor Lens If enough people use those links to buy, it'll offset the extra $$ I paid for my D600 not long ago . Each of those sites has it's own free bundle included for that price. The B&H one looks the best to me since it includes a SanDisk Class 10 32GB card (Amazon and Adorama give you a Transcend card), extra 3rd party battery, and a monopod. All three sites give you a free bag.
