G7 vs P5000

I would say that's a fair choice. There is a lot more to the G7 in terms of controls and adjustments.

I wouldn't change a G7 for the P5000, I added one in simply because of my long term familiarisation with the Nikon interface.

I've been doing some comparative IQ tests in the last hour or so. I'd say the Nikon has the upper hand at ISO400 and ISO800 and better AWB under flourescent/incandescent lighting.

But the differences are NOT huge, rather just a different way of treating what I think is the same CCD.
If you wanted an ultra tough very adjustable camera, go G7

If you want a light, good 10MP cameara with less adjustability, but great out the box images, go P5000

I think the Nikon will get more use than the G7 with me because it is light and ergonomically lovely.

But the G7 has the overall edge. The P5000 is best compared to the top of range Canon A series rather than the G series.
