We went through the same situation in our lab (SVN to Git) and here are few
thoughts,

1. We wanted Git primarily to get the benefits of Github
2. Also, as it gives the option to locally version code (plus local
branches).

The downside of Git as I felt is its initial learning curve. Another is
that in SVN you could work (checkout) on subfolders, but with Git model
this is not encouraged although something similar could be done with
http://git-scm.com/docs/git-submodule

Thanks,
Saliya
