Any regrets about ditching your dSLR and going with a bridge cam?

I would love to hear from those of you who have liberated yourselves from the burden of the dSLR you may have ditched, or just stopped using, in favor of a bridge camera, or other high quality, small sensor zoom camera.

I'm beginning to realize that, though I really like the IQ of a larger sensor, the nuisance of changing lenses, and carrying around the accessories, is a PITA.

The IQ I see in cameras like the FZ100 and 150, are astonishingly superb, in my opinion, of course.

In my, just ended, four month stay in Europe, I had my LX3, and G2. Though I used both about equally the same, there are times, when looking over my collection, that I have to look at the exif data to see which photo was shot by which camera, unless it's quite obvious, like a telephoto zoom, which the LX3 is very limited to.

Hope to hear from those that are satisfied, or not.
