I used to like this camera, did a pretty good job. Maybe it was a little fuzzier at full resolution than I liked but it was still pretty good.
What makes this camera a 1-star? A well known problem with the G-series - they suck in dust onto the sensor. I tried taking it apart myself but I couldn't get to the sensor (the 3 screws holding it are glued down). The alternative? Probably a 100-pound-plus repair bill and NO guarantee it will work afterwards (my G7 was destroyed when I had it repaired by a canon repair shop - often the G series only perform half the functions after a "repair").
KEEP AWAY FROM THE G-SERIES UNLESS YOU ARE HAPPY WITH A LIFETIME OF ABOUT 1 YEAR. I'VE HAD 2 G-SERIES CAMERAS NOW AND THEY BOTH FAILED AFTER A YEAR.
