Looks great, but Canon's ooc jpeg always does. I agree with previous posters that there's a fair amount of NR being applied and that that may be limiting resolution. I'm looking forward to see the full review and RAW comparisons.

If this camera goes down in price (to $600?) it may be a big success.

I don't find anything special about the sensor. At high ISO there is plenty of NR

And yet there is still detail. It's easy to get rid of noise if you don't mind smearing the image until it looks like an oil painting, but not destroying detail is the trick. By the way, there is nothing special about this sensor if it were used in an SLR.

To my eyes, viewing the samples on my old and uncalibrated monitor, I'd have to say that shot taken at ISO 12,800 looks remarkably good.

Canon has done something good here.

The lens does not seem to have that much resolution (could be these sample preparation ..)..but the lack of noise is great......I wonder if Canon is going to use this sensor for a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses...seems odd to produce it just for this one G camera.

I think the not "that much resolution" may in fact be lots of noise reduction smearing the details. NR is very obvious in the mouse "fur" in the ISO 6400 shot. Then again, that is 6400, so it's still pretty impressive. Well need to compare raw files against other cameras to really know for sure.

Looks amazing to me and if anything better than my first Canon digital, the D30 I paid a ton for. The progress in sensors is astounding. It is getting to where the only real advantage of the larger sensors is to blur backgrounds.

John, this little camera has a big sensor. It's nearly as big as the sensor in your D30! That's one reason it performs so well.
