So, I know it was a bit dated but I'm missing my G10. Recently I got two 40d's and I'm debating jus trading one off for a G series companion. I've been eyeballing the 12, 15 and 16 but it's getting hard to decide at this point. All seem to have a good following.

Would I be best looking to trade into any one of these specifically? I'm guessing they will all keep my pretty happy for my travel needs, but I'm not sure if there are any red flags or things I should be overly worried about.

The 40d's I have are both in excellent shape. I ordered one online and the same day it arrived I was also gifted a 40d setup with lenses from friends of the family by surprise. I'm planning to just keep the gifted setup as it was such a nice gesture and just part with the other spare body. I'm new to the 40d as well, but I'm thinking I don't need two identical setups. Unless it would be unwise to swap for the smaller G series line-up mentioned above.

Any recommendations?

This is difficult to answer. I have the G16 and love it, but would have no idea how it compares to the others. My G16 images are comparable to my T2i or 7d, but only 12 meg instead of 18.

I could likely say some of my best shots have come from the G16.

Thanks for the info. I'd like to try something newer than the 10, so I wasn't sure how new I really needed to go. The 15 seems to have a pretty good reputation at this point. I lurk in the G15 photo thread and see lots to be admired so I figured I would ask before making any jumps. I love my 40d, I just don't think I need a 5d, 20d, and 2 40d's right now.

Interesting...I've assumed I'd probably love the 60d and 7d, but I guess you never really know until you give in and try them.

I know all of my currently setup is a bit dated. I don't need the best and newest and honestly the 5d Classic and 20d both have served me extremely well.

The G series just seems very appealing in general to me. I loved my 10 but no longer have it. I have my LX3 for travel currently, but the G series is still calling to me.

Seems like the 15 is the best priced at the moment as well.

+1 on the G15. The price even at $350 still makes it a good deal but $300 is better. ;) The G15 is with me daily. I also carry the 5D-C but the IQ on the G is quite nice considering the sensor size.
