A new step in this “affair”, a still more original situation appeared :
the Sx130 and the G12 obtain exactly the same 8/10 in both performance and image quality !
How that kind of situation may be possible ?
No, the G12 doesn’t have the same performance as the Sx130.
No, the G12 doesn’t have the same image quality as the Sx130.
Yes, the Sx130 may obtain 8/10 in performance and image quality.
But if the Sx130 gets 8/10, the the G12 HAS TO OBTAIN 9/10 in both performance and image quality !
Please, be fair, an apply a modification to the G12 marks.

OK, Greynerd, but then, the Sx130, which makes less beautiful pictures thant the G12,
must get a lower 7/10.
We may also consider that, nowadays, digital cameras becoming better and better
a 10 steps scale is too short.
A Sx130 could get a 15/20, a G12 could get a 16/20, a Wb2000 could get a 17/20,
and there would be 3 steps (18/20, 19/20, 20/20) fot DSLRs.

I have owned each of the G-series since the G6, and I still have the G10,11 & 12. For clear sharp and well balanced images the G10 was the peak of quality, provided that you dont want high ISO. At low ISOs my G10 images were often of library quality. The G11 added higher ISO, but lost a little sharpness, and impact on JPEGS. The G12, what can I say? I hope the movies and all that are good, but I dont use them, for the images are as soft as, well you know, and colour balance is great, flash colour worse, and generally this is a really mediocre camera. Shame.
