I'm looking forward to buying a camera, the prob...Point n shoot have really small sensors, so low light et all shooting sucks and DSLR are quite big, they feel like someone who is serious about photography. I'm not but I do know quality when I''ve shot it. Thom below says what I want to say very well. Fellow photographers, enthusiasts, support him, he really knows how design one. A good read and nice plea to camera companies.
In the mean time I'm planning to pickup Canon A590 IS. Decent and price less than 10k.
