no hard feelings. I get hyper-sensitive when excited.

Seriously though, you are right if you are comparing a G15 with a XSi, the only advantage the XSi has is the ability to swap lenses, but the G15 makes up for that in size. Like i said, right tool for the right job. And not to mention the majority of people don't know how to use a DSLR manually and there for a point and shoot is perfect.
No hard feelings man!
Btw, a friend of mine who is an avid photographer just picked up the Sony RX100 and I have to say the pictures are pretty impressive. It would be in the same category as the G15.. Check it out, Zeiss glass, 1.8 aperature, 1" 20MP sensor.. pretty incredible.
I know Sony has some real nice stuff. I looked hard at the nex5n. It just did not feel comfortable to me.
I know the RX100 is nice, but the G15 is only at f2.0 or f2.4 while the RX100 is at f4.9 in tele. It is also @ $200 more.
I am just tired of lugging my 60d around when a smaller camera would be more appropriate.
