New Camera?

So I want a new camera.. Any suggestions?

Currently I’m considering a Canon G10 or Canon SX10IS, Price? Under 600.

I know theres some 2nd hand gear available in the DSLR market, And I might be interested there too, But I’m questioning how much of a learning curve it could be, or alternativly, If I’d really get results that I’d like.. A P & S takes some of that work out of the picture, which makes it a bit easier on the mind..

Thoughts? Sugestions?

Oh, a 2nd hand G9 or S5IS was considered too, but 2nd hand they’re going to near, or more, than the newer models on ebay, And i cant seem to see anything  being sold on any other site i know of.. So maybe some locations for 2nd-hand gear too?
