I'm a camera noob, my experience with digital was the Canon S100 and then I bought the Canon SD630 when it first came out a year+ ago. But I really enjoy photography and taking pictures. I love having something small, simple P&S, BUT, I'd love to have some more features, I rather enjoy reading through this forum and seeing the professional quality pictures from everyones DSLR, but I'm not quite ready to give up my P&S. Would the Canon G9 but a good transition camera? Still fairly small, but quite powerful as far as features, 12.1MP, RAW files, ability to use some add-on lens, etc. What is OTAP take on this camera?
