Interesting reading. Just recommended a G10 to my niece who's a keen 13 year old photographer and will be her first "serious" camera - this article should make her happy.
For those not wanting to follow the link he took same shot of a fall foliage shot with G10 and a Hasselblad with digital back 39MP. On 13x9 prints a large group of experts couldn't pick which camera had taken which picture. Obviously all usual caveats apply but fairly impressive for a compact camera.
