Do most DSLR owners also own a point and shoot?

I have the iPhone 5 on me at all times which is okay for a snapshot. I also have an Olympus Tough TG-820 for the water parks, scuba, and pool fun. But the Tough's IQ doesnt do it for me so I usually grab my Fuji X100 as my default camera when heading out the door. X100 has fantastic IQ for any light condition, decent size, and great handling.

I have a 230SX for when I don't want to carry my 7D, but I just got the new Blackberry phone and may well sell the pocket camera. I only use it on vacations or trips when my kid wants quick snapshots. I think the phone will do the job now. I'm going to try it out during our summer vacation.

The new sony experia z apparently has an exmore sensor. Not sure if this is a legitimately good sensor or some sort of marketing acrobatics, but it looks interesting.

Bought an s100 the end of last year, and it just sits(quality not good enough). I find that my pns is my dslr. Getting the pancake as a light carry option. Have the 270ex as well, but usually carry the 580...

This is an interesting concept: the lightweight, compact, inexpensive pancake - as "PS" camera lens.

I don't own one myself but I see more people using it because of its space saving convenience. A main bulk of today's dSLR is the complex zoom lens. You lose flexibility with the pancake but it makes your dSLR a bit more convenient ;).

I have the Canon G11 in my work backpack and my iPhone 4S and Canon S110 in my pocket at all times. Is it a overkill? My wife sure thinks so.

I have a G15 that takes better photos than my old 10D. The 10D is more fun to use though, and I have a lot more to pick from in terms of focal length. I think a G series is a great compliment to an EOS. I end up using them both for different things.

I've bought several but I always end up selling them due to disuse.

My 'point and shoot' camera involves me carrying my iPhone 5 in my pocket. I have always toyed with getting a real P&S camera, but since my iPhone is so readily accessible, I really don't see the need.

Photos from the iPhone 4S and 5 are really quite good :oops: I've got a 4, which isn't that great, but it still works a treat when I've got no other camera on me!

True. I use my Iphone 5 whenever I don't carry the dslr. Great for snapshots and much easier to share photos with the family of the baby.
