Picked up a nice new G12 w/270EX. I really like it so far. I've had DSLR's in the past but got in a little trouble with all the gear swaps/buys I did so decided to keep it simple this time. It seems like a very versatile little camera with excellent IQ and features. I'll post samples soon.

How did you find the shutter lag vs the DSLRs?

Well, there is a difference but I just don't care. It's a neat little camera with just about all through feature of a dslr.

I love my G series camera. Although, mine is now considered a little old school. I'm still using the g7!

How does it perform in low light/indoor situations? Is there a noticeable amount of noise like you'd see with point in shoot cameras or is it's performance more resembling that of a DSLR?

Thanks,
Rob

I can only speak for the G9...compared to my old 30D it was much, much more noisy at high ISO...

I have a G11. I love it, but Good God! I could do a load of laundry in the time between shutter press and taking the picture. This puppy is sloooow! But, the lens is sharp, it's very intuitive to use and I love it.

I sold my spare DSLR for lack of use and will just be using my 7D .

I think having a "G" camera for a spare as part of the kit would be a great idea plus the wife would use it as well . She's a bit intimidated by the 7D....I am too sometimes ! ;)

Slightly off topic, but I bought the G11 to practice shooting in RAW. Alas, I am also new to Lightroom and wouldn't you know, the darn Lightroom ate my first images with the G11! No worries, though. I'll just take more!
