The 10 megapixel sensor and new DIGIC 4 processor allows better low light performance with lower noise. The G11 is available priced at £453. Read the review on Kirks site, found via 1001noisycameras.
“But, if you are a step by step, left brain kind of person who likes to shoot in the streets, loves setting things up carefully. Thinks portraits can be considered and gracious affairs. Loves to shoot things with lots of sharpness and depth of field I can certainly recommend the G11. I’ve shot close to a thousand frames since I got it a week ago and I’ve done my share of pixel peeping. I could shoot portraits in the studio with this and portraits out on the street. I could (have) shot some product shots with the little sucker and no one was the wiser.”
