Of course.

I'm in the same situation.
In the past I used Subversion, then Mercurial and now I'm starting to
use Git.

First of all, a DVCS is much more flexible, compared to traditional VCS.
Just think about the case when you develop some common code in a
separate library, and you want to release it under an open source license.

With a DVCS sharing it is not a problem.
In the past there was not even support for mirroring a Subversion

Another useful feature of git (and mercurial) is the ability to amend a
commit (and I use it a lot!).

Compared to Mercurial one critical benefit of Git is easy branch support.
I suggest you to read the Pro Git book, and compare it with the
Mercurial book and the Subversion book (all available free online and as
a PDF).

Working in topic branches really change your way of working.
With Mercurial usually I ended up in chaos, when I was working on
multiple things at once.
