Is the G9 the top of the line P&S for Canon??

I have a G5 and I'm thinking of getting something newer like the G9....

If you are going to take underwater pics then the g5 is better because of it´s stronger flash i´ve heard

I had three G5s, and every time I used them underwater, they broke?!

G9 is an excellent P&S. As for underwater all P&S flashes are poor.
