hi guys im planning to get more serious on street photography and wanna upgrade to a higher end P&S,. im really interested in g15, is there anyone out there on the streets using this? how do you feel about the af? the reaction time? Thanks|!

The Canon G's are just plain fun.  They will certainly work like a P&S, but they are capable of a lot more.  I have more expensive rigs, but for the street the the G's are great.  I dragged around a G10 for years and have some of my best stuff with it (serendipity-the law of the street).  I went to the G15 last year because I scratched the lens on my G10 (tragedy).  In your research you will read a lot of put-downs on the crappy optical viewfinder, but it's useful and I use it.
