With the Sony and the lenses I used, I could not really see a difference to the photos I made with my Canon Powershot or Sony Cybershot, so I guess it was not worth to pay 800 Euro for it.
this is precisely the point i was trying to make. most people can't see a difference, and don't need all the extra features of a dslr. a good point and shoot will work just as well for most consumers and even hobbyists.
