By the way, I just checked the reviews from April 2004, and I
realized that the Pro1 and its direct competitors were all at the
same price: $999. And I have to admit that it may be a problem for
many people to fork out more for a great compact than for a very
good entry-level dslr.

Did you look up the price of the good entry-level dSLR in April 2004?
It's all relative.

Good point. There's another side of this which I think may also get a bit overlooked. Sales of DSLR's may, in fact, get a boost from good quality compact from those wishing more capability/versatility. It never ceases to amaze me how manufacturers seem to give the impression that a good quality compact and a good quality DSLR are somehow mutually exclusive to the customer. Go figure.
