I like my old G9 pretty well, although its limitations are sometimes frustrating. But, it is perfect for taking on non-photography trips were space in my carry-on is limited. It is the best bridge between a real pocket camera and a DSRL.
I did read that the current G12 performs better and come closer to a DSRL. I was able to buy mine cheap but would've bought the G12 otherwise.
