    Users who have done so, please comment!

    Yes, I posted a similar thread back in October, but now that users have used it in anger, I am seriously tempted, but need to justify it to the Financial Controller.

    I hardly ever use my G6 or Ixus, as I always carry my 350D around with me. But a back up on saturday would be useful...

    Not an owner/user myself but I understand that the G6 is about as good as the G series gets.

    yes thats what all the reviews say but I hate it! Slow, clunky, turns on accidentally, noise at high isos.....

    BUT it gives better quality pictures than the ixus.

    I would happily ditch both for a good, allround compact.

    Have not used the G6 but have a G9 as a carry anywhere camera. Takes a bit of getting used to but once you find your way about its full potential you will be amazed at its performance.

    Not 100% sure but I think you can use the G9 as a backup on Wednesday's as well.

    Yes, but only if there's an 'r' in the month and then only during odd number years. Apparently there was an omission. The manual's back at the printers for reissue by all accounts.

    Do what I do.

    Buy it.
    Hide it.
    Bring it out months later.
    When asked if it's new just say "No I've had it ages" which will be true...

    I'm not convinced by the reviews I've read, only if several people who had upgraded from the G6 to G9 gave very positive feedback would I be tempted... it really does seem as though once having used a DSLR its very difficult to be satisfied with a small sensor...

    Well, in a way, you've answered your own question.
    Fact - given a reasonable level of light, a compact camera can deliver satisfying results. But once the light drops, a dslr with the right lens cannot be beat.
    But technology knows no boundaries. The manufacturer that can produce a pocketable camera with a dslr response in lower light will find a ready audience.

    Hint - try a 'canon g6 versus g9' or 'g6 versus g7' search on Google
