It was so warm yesterday my best friend Susan and I sat in my backyard long into dusk drinking beer and wine and talking until we couldn't see each other anymore and taking pics with my new G9 which had just arrived earlier in the day. It's a solid camera, but very sluggish to focus and snap. But the pics it takes are very nice and decent in low light as you can see. Also it shoots in RAW which is a plus. I really just wanted a P&S that I could carry around when I didn't want to lug my 40D and I think this will do nicely.
