Re: Maybe...but

No, it is only as complex as someone wants it to be. The joy and the sorrow of a modern DSLR is that it is only as complex as the shooter wants it to be. It can be as simple as a P&S or as complex as a D200 or D300 etc. Either way he gets fast focusing and no shutter lag. a win win in my book.

IMO the only advantage of a P&S is size and that is not always a big difference.

Frankly even if I just used program mode, jpeg and no PP I would
still get better shots from my D200 then from a P&S! I would also
not miss shots due to slow focusing and shutter lag.
