    The main pro is its very good image quality, particularly in low light, compared to other point and shoots.
    Two major cons are the expense - almost as much as an introductory DSLR - and the fact that advanced point and shoots don't have long zoom lenses.

    I would add that DOF control is better, due to the faster lenses that usually come with these cameras. Plus the more advanced user controls of course. And few consumer compacts have a hotshoe for external flash, while this feature is found on almost all Advanced P&S models.

    Gotta disagree on the expense issue. Dig around on Amazon, etc, and it's not that hard to find some of these cameras used or refurbished around the $300(USD) mark. Which is quite a bit less than a DSLR.
