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.
It really is not about the controls, the G15, and S110, etc will have the DSLR controls. It is about the expensive glass with a DSLR. Cheap glass on a DSLR is not any better than cheap glass on a pocket camera.

I use my pocket cameras all the time on manual controls. That is the difference between a $99 pocket camera and a $449 S110 pocket camera. You can 99% as much on a G or S line camera as a DSLR then upgrade later when it really matters and keep the G or S as your backup or travel.

I had like 6 S line cameras and a G9 before my first DSLR.

Here is a link to pictures taken with a $499 Canon G12...
