wow, the rangefinder camera is expensive but looks like the older style cameras! So, DSLR is best for "professional-like" photos I guess? What is best for action pictures. I like to hike and often see wildlife. I want to take their picture without scaring them, but I also want to be able to take a photo while they are in motion.

Yes, that is correct, the more expensive DSLRs are professional grade...that's what professional wedding photographers exclusively use!
As for a good camera for hiking and wildlife, I would recommend the mirrorless. The mirrorless cameras are smaller and lighter than a big DSLR (good for hiking), and you can buy lenses in the 200-300mm zoom (REALLY far zoomed in) range for them. If you are willing to carry more weight, you can do what professional landscape and wildlife photographers do and just carry a DSLR and a big zoom lens to go with it too. It's all about trade-offs for price, quality, and weight!
