Both the G9 and G10 are very noisy at ISO 1600. Though the harsh grain of the G9 seems to have improved in the G10, it is still losing a lot of fine detail. The ISO 1600 on the G10, like on the G9, is an emergency use setting only.

Still a fantastic camera, and how wrong the conclusion was about how popular the G10 would be :). It's certainly not easy to predict camera sales or popularity, however, the G10 offered so much right I can't see how the conclusion could be anything other than highly recommended. Having owned the G10 before, twice, I still crave using it despite the fact that I've owned the G11,12, 15, and now 16 since. Although the G16 is infinitely better in many respects, the G10 remains the kind of camera that challenges the photographer to do everything right - and when he/she does, it rewards you with fantastic image quality.
