I've sampled a few DSLRs in the past
- Canon Rebel XS - for a weekend. Didn't like it
- Sony Alpha A230 - drove San Diego to SF along PCH and took some photos.
Pros as far as I can see
- better photos
- better photos in more conditions
- more expensive than my current H300 and will take more investment in LowePro bags, lenses and stuff
- I'd have to learn how to use the thing.
- I'd have to haul it around. I hate carrying things - especially heavy and fragile that I have to closely guard
