If I can get something simpler which still produces great pictures it would be ideal.

Looks like these (G15 and SX50) shoots HD video too which is a plus.
Honestly, with the new processors, I would put a G15 against the Rebel line with kit lenses all day long. There are things DSLRs can do better, but not if its left at home.

I have a 60D and 15-85mm and 70-300mm and 50mm and 430EXII and 270EXII.

That is about $2500 worth of gear and I would use the G15 or S110 75-90% of the time I need a camera.

Heck, I love my new SX260HS and it is on sale at Best Buy for like $250!

If you WANT a DSLR or NEED a DSLR buy one, if you want great pics, there are other options (especially if you leave your DSLR in Auto or Portrait mode.)

DSLRs shine with EXPENSIVE lenses. I would take a $500 G15 over a $500 DSLR as is all day long.

As always, JMO.
