Why is the older G11 more expensive than the newer G12.

That doesn't make sense, because the G12 is the better camera:

1. second control wheel on the front
2. HD video
3. less noise at higher ISO (800 and above)
4. HDR mode
5. built-in electronic spirit level

It might not be worth it to upgrade from the G11 to the G12, but if someone has to decide between the two ... well, I decided for the G12 without hesitation

BTW, usually the G11 is a bit cheaper as the G12. The Amazon pricing is nonsense.

PS: Because most people dont' believe point 3 ... read this:

Check the ISO800 shadow noise and compare to this G12 example, I took freehand:
