    I would sell the extra photography stuff and keep the meat and potatoes. Maybe sell everything but keep the 50mm F1.8. Then buy a used D50 kit for what you would spend on a G9 or G10.

    Now see this is where discipline works wonders. I have put myself on a strict aquisition diet. I was saving for a D700 and glass but, now I have decided to keep that money aside for just in case.
    Cant help you on P&S cams though as I dont own one.

    If you HAVE to sell and go down to a P&S, the only two that stand out in that market segment (with superzoom capability) is the Panasonic FZ28 and the Canon SX10. The Canon G10 is an awesome camera, but it does not have superzoom which was an important aspect to me.

    I also own the D90 and love it... but for quick outings or for times I want to carry lighter gear, my Pana FZ28 comes with me. It shoots RAW and has excellent IQ. Very capable bridging camera!

    I would say keep the camera--never get rid of it. Youll regret it a lot when you get back into photography.

    I have played with the Nikon P90, which is one of them neat superzooms. it has the manual mode, reletively short shutter lag and feels nice holding it.
    If i were to purchase a P&S for myself id probaly go with the Nikon Coolpix P6000. The only problem is the lack of a built in flash. Id probaly get the SB-400 for it if I really wanted a flash, but you have a flash already that you could use.

    the 35mm equiv lens is a 28-112. My 35-105mm lens is my favoite lens I have for my 35mm camera. so this lens covers more range!

    It all looks good on paper--but I have never held one and used it--so i cant really recomend it....but from what I have read about it...i could recmend it.
