Digital vs. D SLRs ?

Is there any advantage to a digital SLR over a "regular" digital camera?
I currently have a Minolta Dimage 7i and am considering a Nikon D 70.

Yes - quite a few

Large selection of lenses available.

Little or no, shutter lag.

Better low light performance.

Less noise in images due to larger size of the sensor.

About 3 times as many manual controls.

On the other hand,,,

More opportunity to spend money buying several lenses that one lens will do in lots of non DLSR cameras.

Having to lug around a bag with several lens in it just in case you need a macro or telephoto shot.

Whoa! I wonder how much money is hanging off of him.

I hope he got a few good shots. He's lucky he doesn't get mugged. Wink

I wonder why he's not using a single point and shoot?

I guess the SLRs must have something that's pretty attractive.
