Having previously owned both G11 and G12 I was not sure it was worth upgrading to the G15. After trying it out in a shop and using it for a few weeks, I'm definitely sure it's worth it!
The camera is lighter with better ergonomics than its predecessors and it just feels a lot more nimble and responsive. Autofocus is much snappier, processing times seem quicker...and I'm willing to sacrifice the tilting screen for a more pocketable camera. The screen may not move but its resolution and colour are superb. Some reviews lament the fact that it hasn't been upgraded to a touch screen - but this strikes me as a gimmick that photography enthusiasts don't really want.
All the usual G series external controls are there except for ISO, which has lost its control wheel and now needs a couple of button presses. Canon have kept the same interface for these cameras for quite a while now and, for people who like external controls, it's just great. For those that want them, there are a few colour filters and toy camera etc modes but I feel Canon's heart is not really in these. It just designed to be a high quality tool for getting the best possible picture.
The new faster lens is very welcome. With Canon's excellent image stabilisation it lets you keep the ISO as low as possible in quite dim lighting conditions and in addition noise doesn't really seem to be much of a problem till you get up to ISO1600.
Straight-out-of-camera JPEGS are rendered with a rich, punchy colour that I really like. If these are not to your taste, there are other colour settings and tweaks.
So...is it perfect??
Well, I think Canon are getting there...but there are a couple of issues, at least as far as I'm concerned.
It does show the limitation of a smallish sensor by tending to clip highlights.

The G15 is summed up by dpreview, in the conclusion to their multipage review, as follows: " The Canon Powershot G15 is a well-refined product and a joy to use. It is very quick and responsive in operation, built like a tank and offers the most external controls in its class. In combination with the fast 28-140mm F1.8-2.8 lens that makes it a very versatile and pocketable photographic tool that offers almost the same degree of control as much larger DSLRs "

The G15 is highly commended by this reviewer ( I have owned one for a few weeks ) for outdoor work, where a high quality compact camera is required for convenience and portability, and it is useable at higher iso settings than any previous G series Canon. Within the 'G' series, the G10 will produce very slightly higher quality images, but only at its lowest iso setting, above which it gives up ( unless you're prepared to post process raw files). High iso settings are essential for taking photos in low light, or of night scenes like floodlit cityscapes without a tripod, and only recently in the history of digital camera development has it been possible to achieve good high iso results with compact cameras. The G15 is as good as it gets in this regard, at time of writing, for a compact camera with a fixed zoom lens. It is wonderfully fast to focus, as well.

The G15 must be used with care for good results with flash. By default an evening scene will be transformed into bright daylight with all the atmosphere of the evening or nighttime lost. Best portraits indoors or in low light are usually taken with fill in flash and Canon is notoriously worse than Nikon or Fuji at getting this right in auto mode.

Verified Purchase
Background: I've a number of Canon SLRs (currently 7D and 60D bodies) but for portability and convenience (the best camera ois the one you have with you!) carry a decent compact. For several years I've used and loved the Canon PowerShot G10 (f2.8-4.5): a brilliant camera that I've trekked, skiied and motorbike-toured through four continents. Great IQ, just about pocketsized, but too many megapixels squeezed onto the small sensor for high ISO work (anything over 400.)

So, when my trusty G10 died, the obvious replacement was the G15. After three weeks use, I'm sold.

First, it's similar to the G10/11/12 range in terms of controls. Of course, it offers the usual Auto, intelligent Program, Aperture and speed prority settings as well as full manual. The same comprehensive menu setting and the ability to shoot in RAW (for me, a must.)There's still an optical viewfinder - again something important to me. The same 5x optical zoom range. The build quality too feels solid and reassuring - although I suspect there will still be the "sticking lens" issue which is a "feature" of cameras with pop-out lenses.

Differences: pop-up flash, and the exposure compensation dial has been moved from the left to the right. No problems with this. A new (not found on the G10)setting scroll wheel is conveniently placed right front of the G15 - a welcome innovation. And the image stabilisation is better than the G10: Canon boast 4 stops, and that seems believable to me.

And, it's smaller - at least in terms of depth - significant enough to allow it to fit in my suit pocket. To allow this, the swivel screen found on the G12 has been lost.
