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.
Thanks for the input. I wish I had the time to get fully proficient with the DSLR, but in reality, it hasn't happened and won't likely be a priority.

It sounds like I'm better off getting one of the more powerful P&S cameras since I carry one 75% of the time anyway.
