IF you seriously expected detail in the trees at that distance you are going to be seriously disappointed in anything sub 20MP

I guess it is due to the limitation of small size senor, rather than low MP counts.

So then why is there ISO 3200 notch in G11's ISO dial?

This is your argument?? Because it can be used for downsized pictures and in certain situations may be the only way to get a picture. So if its a selectable option then it should be perfectly usable in all circumstances?

If you will downsize ISO 3200 images what is low light mode for? I read it provides low resolution image from ISO 320 to ISO 12800.

I expected a decent ISO 800 which you can use with confidence.

Confidence in what? Being able to print poster size?? Out of the few samples available it looks perfectly usuable for at least 5x7 prints and probably 8x10's, but we will see.

I mean in its native resolution.
