The G series produces much higher image quality.
Both the G11 and G12 are excellent cameras.

The G cameras will produce better quality images and you can shoot RAW. The SX260 has an incredible zoom and surprisingly good image quality - at least if it is in the same league as the 230 which I own. My SX230 goes everywhere I go, even when I my main camera is a DSLR. It slips easily in my pocket (the Gs don't - they are much bigger).

If you want the best IQ, the get the G12 or even the new G1X. An alternative is the S100 - same IQ as a G12 but much smaller in size. If you need the reach of a long zoom, then get the Sx260.
