No I didn't miss my DSLR which is unlike any previous experience I've had with compact cameras. If you are careful with regards to getting the focus right (I wish I had set it to AF spot rather than the multi AF option) and exposure then this camera's image quality is very good.
I think I managed to get a lot more images that I wouldn't have if I had been carrying a DSLR. Especially since I was riding a bike everyday. For future rides I'd consider having some kind of pouch mounted to the handlebars for easier access to the camera.
Thanks for the feedback. Riding a bike and lugging a DSLR at the same is a no-no for me. The handlebar pouch would be handy… I believe that Ortlieb has a line of small and medium sized handlebar bags or pouches.
