I don't actually have a newer small compact, just an old Canon S110 (2 whole MP!), but I am looking to get one in the near future. I've had several times since getting more into photography that I've wanted a smaller camera and not my DSLR and associated lens. At the same time I'm spoiled with the image quality and flexibility that a DSLR allows. Since you guys are "serious" about compacts I thought I might find some good recommendations here for a camera that gives you some of the best of both camera styles. Thanks!
