The cheaper not-quite-SLRs with fixed lenses give you 90% of the image quality with much less weight and bulk. You'll be able to shoot from tele to macro with just the one unit without needing to buy or carry around extra lenses.
A photo you miss because you didn't take out your camera because it was too heavy and/or valuable, or because you had to pause to swap a lens, is a photo that's gone forever.
The sub-SLRs make it much more likely you'll get that photo. The differences in image quality aren't noticeable unless you know exactly what to look for.
I've used my Fuji sub-SLR far more than I've used my Fuji SLR, even though the complete SLR kit cost something like ten times as much.
For a comparison, see if you can tell which camera was used in the respective images I posted above.
with 500 pixel wide jpegs at 72 dpi one wouldn't expect much of a difference - now with 13 x 19 inch prints, as in the review of the G10 - that was "somewhat amazing" :-)
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
