Canon Powershot G5 Still a valid compact?

I am going to this crazy festival that i go to every year, and i was wondering if a used Canon Powershot G5 still would be a good camera?

i mean the 5 megapixel is more than enough, but how is the quality, and also very important how will the speed be? anyone got one or got experiences i would apreciate help or other suggestions? size dont matter that much i would just aswell buy an old dslr, just dont want to bring my normal gear.

btw i can get the canon g5 for 60$

oh and i should say that my daily camera is a olympus pen e-p2 with vf-2 and some glass, i have had a nikon dslr and used quiet allot of different cams, what i really value is bright lens, "Normal" focal length, a good censor and as much manual controls as possible.

Thank you for your help.
