The G10 lens...

Yes. There is definitely CA present, although from what I've observed so far, less than from the G9 (and much less than most other P&S cameras!). Since CA is quite easy to remove, I am generally more concerned about other issues regarding the lens. Like how sharp it is and how well it resolves details. The G10 lens is indeed less sharp towards the edges, but in general I find that it delivers very good results (knowing we can't have dslr + L lens quality at this level).
