So, doing that, do the later G-Series (maybe from G10 to the newest G15)cameras simply blow away the IQ of the later SX-superzooms (SX30, 40, 50)? Is there an obvious difference here?

This is "mainly" an Image Quality personal opinion comparison.

Pretty much, particularly in lower light situations -- and especially so for the G15 with its faster lens.

In many situations the IQ differences will be no big deal (e.g., "vacation" shooting in daylight condx).  But the G15 and others of the series also provide more flexible shooting controls and other features (e.g., built-in neutral density [ND] filter).
