I had the same question yesterday. What I found relevant was the following page (look for the IR filter description)
http://www.lensmateonline.com/buy.html

They only discuss the difference between G1 and G2, so it's only a guess that Canon didn't change the specs for the G3.

I'd like to do IR as well, so any followups are greatly appreciated.

I've not done IR with a digicam but here are some resources you may want to check out.

This is a Yahoo!! Group devoted to Digital IR Photography:

This is a German-language website of IR shots done w/ the G3:

Thanks, John.
Neat pics on the German site!! Wish I could remember what little German I learned 35 years ago. The gist I got was that the images were in both B&W mode and color mode using a B+W 092 filter.
Thanks again.

Can't remember where, but I saw a specific statement about the G3 not being able to do IR photography as well as the G1 and G2. Blanking on the reason why right now...

some sort of heat shield or something like that...

someone did post some pretty decent pics with the g3 though... i think the shutter has to stay open longer to accomplish it though.
