The problem is not with the processor or the sensor (well it is too small for the camera), it is with the quality of the lens itself. The marketing team won over the engineers again. The engineers said: “we can either make a very high quality, sharp lens (like the P7700), OR, we can make a very fast low quality lens” that will produce blurry images. Since it was cheaper to make a faster lens than a high quality lens, and since “fast lens” is the new buzz word, the marketing team won. Now what you have is very blurry images in both JPEG and RAW, and there is nothing that can be done about it. The lens in the G10/G11/G12 was not as fast as the G15, but they were much higher quality and enabled very high resolution for each of those sensors. It does not matter how much post processing or shooting in RAW that can help anyone now. My suggestion would be if you want really sharp images and a MUCHbetter reach, return the G15 ASAP and get a P7700 quick! If you have not purchased the G15 yet, you should really think twice about it. if you have not already seen all the super soft images in both JPEG and RAW

The G15 is and always will be just a nice Point&Shoot camera. You want all that super good stuff,  buy a real quality DSLR and a real quality lens. The G15 is what it should be for what it was designed to be used for. And does it well.
