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...
So basically I'm still going to have to learn how to use the DSLR controls proficiently if I want these cameras to really shine over lesser P&S cameras then, right?

If that is the case I guess I'll just have to make the time to learn about it more.
