You mean suck like this $AU169 camera OOC shot?

Yes, like that. DSLRs leapfrogged forwards in IQ in the last 10 years (although some aspects are debatable), while P&S deteriorated to... This basically. Plastic slow lenses beyond the edge of diffraction and overmegapixeled sensors resulting in crappy contrast, blown out highlights and the default 'mobile phone' blueish tint since those CMOS sensors with barely any bayer filtering can't render proper color.

That's why Sony RX100 was a revelation. Finally a compact worth something.
