I'm pretty happy so far 1 week owning it but was wondering if anyone could comment on the smallest f-stop on the G15. Is it f/8 and is that good enough for taking closeups with good depth of field?

Yes. The smallest aperture is f8. But don't be fooled... on a small sensor camera like this f8 is a tiny little hole about 1mm in diameter and well into the diffraction region. It is sort of like f22 or so on a 1.6 crop camera (or f36 on a Full Frame)  in terms of DOF performance. Tons of DOF... in fact, f4 has tons of DOF on the G15. You really wouldn't want anything smaller than f8 on the camera.
