The results are very close. The G10 manages to retain marginally better detail with the same amount of noise as the G9. The performance at ISO 400 is very good for a small sensor compact, continuing the tradition (of the G9) of retaining good colour and detail without too much noise.

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.
