the G11 goes down to 10mp from 14.7 in the G10. Canon had the balls to do what the rest of the market, since fuji's f30, has been too gutless to do...actually reduce MP's on a top end compact.

how it performs is yet to be seen but the principal of what canon just did should make everyone breathe a sigh of relief. its what most of us have been begging for...ENOUGH WITH THE MP'S ALREADY !!!!

with a nice big fully articulating LCD, RAW, hotshoe and VF no less. this thing looks bad ass man.
