Damage Inc: The Canon G12 seems the one to go with.
I've been wanting one next to my SLR, so I could sometimes carry one in my pocket for events like concerts and such.
So that I don't have to walk around with a big camera on my neck or on my hip and it doesn't feel so cumbersome.

But it's too bad the price is so ridiculous... I'm not spending that on a secondary compact camera...
Also, what's up with the only 5x zoom?? While other compact Canon-cameras with the same or similar lenses such as the SX100 have 10x zoom.
These are 2 major points that keep me from buying it...

Also worth considering is that while the G12 is a wonderfully reassuring solid compact, it's not exactly pocketable for the events you mention. It's a camera for around the neck or in a satchel bag or something. I've had the G10 and G11 and it IS possible to have it in you pocket if you're not wearing jeans – they are chunky. (hey there, is that a brick in your pocket?)
