I reckon I fall into the category mentioned in the OP post.
Mostly had point and shoot cams over the years. Tried my son's Canon SLR for a time. Too much to carry around for me and the cost of lenses. Decided to upgrade with an advanced compact about 18 months ago - an Olympus XZ-1. Ended up selling it even tho it had good image quality, but it was quite noisy at HI ISOs, the video was terrible, and I didn't like the handling (esp the lens cap) and no built in viewfinder etc. Picked up a new G15 a few days ago at a special 1 day AU$100 off sale. Couldn't be more delighted. It's the camera that the XZ-1 should have been as a complete package. Handles like a dream with good IQ and video. Very pleased with it.
