I carry my Nikon D200 with me almost everywhere. Sometimes I'll bring my Nikon D40 as a backup. Even though it can be a pain lugging around a DSLR and a few lens, I still don't think it's worth spending $500 for an advanced compact camera when you already have a reliable DSLR.

My dream point & shoot would have a magnesium allow body, at least a 20x optical zoom & the abilty to shoot jpeg andAdobe DNG raw.

I've gone through a lot of 'pocket' cameras, over the years, and they always seem to have a deal breaker, until I found the Canon G10. I have it in my briefcase, and use it for training sessions - shooting at 640 X 480, then go to 15MB RAW files while walking the gardens, parks, and landscapes of the places I visit. No deal breakers, and I have had it almost a year now. I've even shot some video - quite impressive!

I like my Nikon D60 and I'm still learning. I like the Nikon products so I chose the Nikon P6000 because I wanted a more advanced P&S that had camera raw capability that I could carry in my purse. I love the camera but I really hate the user manual that comes with it.

I began with the Canon G-2, progressed to the G-7, to the G-10. I think this is the best compact camera series-I have obtained images that rival those taken with my Canon 50D. I would vote for the Canon G11.
