Hello,

This is my first post for I just joined...

I am a very happy G9 owner. I love the reach of the G9.
I had it almost from the day it came out here in Canada.
But sometime I find it not wide enough.
I went to my favorite camera store in Ottawa today and handle a G10.

I want one...Wow, does not quite describe my feeling.

But I wonder if I would mist the reach of G9.

I am wondering, since the G10 has a bit more pixel. Would cropping my picture would come close of the same result I get with the G9...

Any thought.. any one.. ? :lol:

Hi & welcome to the forum.

It depends on your definition of "coming close"... :)

Cropping is never as good as the native resolution of the lense.
The G10 has a max focal lenght of 140mm, the G9 210mm, so it's a ratio of 2/3. Even if the pixel resolution would compensate it (which it doesn't with a ratio of 5/4), tele shots are "better" with the G9.
With only 20% or less of my shots taken at full tele, this would not be the final argument pro G9. And, yes, you can compensate in some way missing tele with cropping, but you can't compensate missing wide angle. That's, for me, the reason, why Canon switched to the wide angle lense with the G10.


Regards,
Piet

Just keep your G9 and get a G10 for wide angle shots, those cams are not so big to take them both on a trip!

Im gonna buy a G10, and have a G7

Greetings

Thanks Piet for stat around this question. It helped me to visualize it.
I see that you use a few add on lens as well. How do you like the result and IQ.

Reservoir_Dog, You are right, Why not I going to get the 10 and keep the 9 ... Excellent...

Regards

Thanks, I am happy with this decision...
I was considering the Panasonic LX3. It seems that reviews I have seen so far are not complaint with a very quick test I did at the store. I took 2 pictures one with the G10 and the same with the LX3, both at 200 ISO and the G10 was far better to my taste...

Thanks again

I like the results and the extra options given by the 2 converters i use.
I don't carry them around all the time (think about the endless discussion "how bulky gets a compact camera with an addon lens" :rolleyes:), but it's ok by me and fits my needs.
You'll find many threads about the (dis)advantages of the different converters & brands on this forum...


Regards,
Piet

I have the Leica version of the LX3 and at ISO 200 it can outperform the G9/G10 but the 2 cameras are complementary not competition. The lenses are so different.
I've just been on a long trip and really missed the G9's telephoto end! I kicked myself for leaving it at home.

I now plan to buy a G10 to go with my DLux 4 ( LX3 ) although when I looked at Circuit City's Sale price last weekend it wasn't low enough!
I'll buy in the UK now that the pound is so weak:(
