Canon is really patting themselves on the back in that one.  When you take a close look at the two low ISO samples posted on the Canon USA site I doubt many professionals would care for the image quality (or lack of it) of the tiny sensor no matter how fast it can shoot...

I thought about buying one, but after reading this thread I can see that would be a mistake. Obviously, the camera is rubbish. Canon probably won't sell a dozen worldwide.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Certainly not a bad camera, but with a fixed screen it lowers my need drastically to update our little G12 here at all.

What excuse did you use when the G13, G14 and G15 were released?

dpreviews published test shots show its hi ISO is improved over the G11/12 by a considerable amount.
Also, the faster lens makes for slightly shallower depth of field ability.
not yet sure I'd buy one, my G11 still does what I need it for, but the 16 would allow me to do a few more things with it.
.. and a few less w-o the swivel display.

the G series won't invade into M series aps-c size sensor territory.

it's ironic how us consumers/semi pro's seem to know it all about what canon should do, but canon doesn't seem to care since it sells rebels like starbucks coffee.

it seems like canon just has a metric ton of old tech they need to sell off and will wait until the last moment to make a comeback.

anyway the only thing that caught my eye is the 9.3 FPS, i have no idea how useful the AF system is but that alone would be killer for soccer moms shooting sports.

i'll stick to my OLD kodak Z915 superzoom for point and shoot crap. my 7D still does the real work.
