As has been said before, and not by me, don't get caught up in the mega pixel thing. The Megapixel Myth from Ken Rockwell. Rockwell needs taken with a grain of salt but I think he's close enough here.

To sum the article, an image with an inferior lens and lots of pixels isn't as good as an image with a better lens and fewer pixels.

So if your buying a point and shoot you want a better lens than more pixels.

I looked at the PowerShot G10. Wow, what they'll do to sell cameras these days. Granted it has a bunch of nifty doo dads but from a pure photographic standpoint it's (way) lacking.

If your spending that kind of money your in the D$LR range.

Does the G10 fit the not needing its own bag requirement? I think its on the verge.

The camera strap thing .. Boy, I understand that. I put this camera on a strap and the strap didn't make it one day before it was gone.

I guess I should say I'm not a Gear Chaser. If I were I wouldn't be this happy with the D40.
