Just how bad are blown highlights in G7 ??

I like the features that the G7 provides. Having more control in a small package is what I was expecting. I'm absolutely against carrying a brick like S2 or S3, or SLR (I have an EOS IIe that most of the times stayed at home because it was bulky. Nothing as the Yashica T4 I also own )

Anyhow, I've seen hundreds of pictures taken with G7 and lots have blown highlights. I'm not sure if now I'm atracted towards that "defect" of the camera and is then magnified by me or if the camera is really bad at that.

And if it is bad... how bad ? I don't have the money to have experienced several digicams. So, if compared against others, how bad is it ? What other similar priced cameras fare better at this ?

I'm trying to get me a G7, but blown highlights is the only thing that worries me...

(I would like to read honest opinions and fair critique.)
