While DSLR does have the advantage over a bridge camera in image quality, the bridge camera has the advantage when it comes to convenience. I shot with bridge cameras until recently when I got a DSLR. While I like my E-410, I use my SP590UZ much, much more. Why? I don't have to pack around a bunch of equipment. IQ with the SP590 is excellent for my needs. And, if you're going to be shooting concerts or professional sporting events, you'll be able to take the bridge camera in whereas with a DSLR, you won't many times. My SP590UZ has a range of 26mm to 676mm, a macro mode that is really good, and a super-macro mode that you just don't find on any other bridge cameras. Imagine the equipment and lenses you'd have to cart out for a day with a DSLR to cover this range. Here's are sample shots taken just yesterday under rainy skies through a window. Not the BEST image as I just grabbed a couple to show you.
