Or prime lenses for everyday shooting ... large sensor pocketable cameras without zooms are rare beasts and available only in a few focal lengths.   Flexibility is the hallmark of the DSLR- a change of lenses makes it into a different camera every time.  Plus there's no substitute for the optical viewfinder, at least in my book.

There are times when carrying it is too much of a hassle, though. Then I tens to depend on a decent little 8 megapixel small sensor camera with a prime lens that I always have with me-- the one in my  phone.
