    My father-in-law has a G2 and I was going to get the G9 for him as a birthday gift. Looks like a good idea. :cool:

    Damn I'd do it so I can carry the G9 in my pocket as opposed to my 1D.
    Do you have to physically give them your old one though...?

    Those are all killer deals. :bowdown:

    I have an sd230 that has broken sensor, everything comes out really purple.

    Too bad I already have a Rebel XT, should I get the G9 or SD850?

    G9 is the better camera, but SD850 has similar form as your SD230. G9 is bigger and heavier.
