At the start of this sequence you were debating whether to upgrade your G9 to an S120 or a G15. The G15 is universally liked and being discounted at present. But serious reservations were raised about the S120's IQ and the point was made that maybe Canon have tried to cut corners on the G16 in the way they may have done on the S120. You have bought a G16. I take it from your preliminary work that you are reassured about the G16's IQ?


Hi Alex, So far i like the image quality of the G16, but it will take many more shot to know. I had grown accustomed to the convenience of the SD700/SD850/S95 types of cameras, and learned to deal with the limitations. But for not much bigger, I think I will make some IQ gains with the G16 without gaining too much heft. I don't have a G15 to compare. I imagine those 2 cameras are essentially the same for IQ, but with G16 gains in video, AF speed and EPS. My comparison would be against memories of G9, which I thought was quite good, but could lag somewhat in operations. Have to admit, once I got the S95, the G9 sat on the shelf. Then again, there were enough gains in the S95 for that to make sense. I think there are enough gains with the G16 for the S95 to sit on the shelf (reserved for hazard duty), and that those gains will make the G16 heft worthwhile.
