In my opinion, SVN is easier to use and the tortoise client is superior. 
The point where you need to drop down to the command line comes earlier on 
git than it does for SVN. If the development team always have a good access 
to the same server, then I wouldn't change it from SVN.

It may be just me, but I found git harder to learn. Well, you learn the 
basics in 10s. But when you go a little deeper, understanding the 4 
hierarchies of git, and how to manipulate state in each of these takes 
quite a lot of effort.

However, if it would be beneficial to work with parallel branches in semi 
independent development teams, then git will shine.
