Hi there, just thought I'd let you know what I decided on. I got the Canon 50mm f/1.8 for my DSLR and really like it. I've been so busy though I haven't had time to experiment and do it justice yet.
On the compact decision I originally got a Canon Powershot SX210 but was quite disappointed with it. I had it for about 3 weeks and kept thinking 'why am I not being blown away with this camera?'. The final nail in the coffin for it was an outing to a gig where I got even worse shots than my Lumix...and as for the video...not impressed I'm afraid. Grainy and disappointing. It went back to Amazon (very impressed with their customer service and I got a refund in 2 days. Excellent.)
I've now got a Canon S95 and wow, what a great little camera this is! Only had it a week and I'm loving it. Clear shots, great HD video and great fun with the different scene settings like colour accent. I've yet to tqke it to a gig but I feel confident I'll get some good results with it. I had to stretch a bit further money wise for this one but it definitely feels like it's been worth it!
