It's sad if you think that way, a prosumer can produce good pictures; I've seen better pictures from prosumer users than DSLR users sometimes.
It is only dismaying in certain situations, e.g. you need high ISO a lot; but the informed user would have known all that and gotten a Fujifilm P&S/prosumer or gone DSLR already.
I think prosumers have their place in the market, shouldn't diss them or dismiss them so easily. I had fun with my prosumer and I would encourage anyone not entirely sure whether they are prepared for DSLR - whether you like it or not it's quite a different world tbh; maintenance and long-term wise in terms of care, not just usage - to get a prosumer first. They can keep it later on anyways, for holiday trips and backup camera.
