One advantage with a digital SLR is superior low light performance. This was taken using a tripod, vivid mode, and 1.5 secs at F4.5.
The flash range on the DL2 is extremely good. The back wall of this pub is at least 30ft away.
The only real problem with image quality is a tendency to over-saturate reds in bright mode, although there is manual saturation adjustment available.
