    Camera time, Help

    My trust Canon G9 is starting to die one me. It may not go today, tomorrow or even next week. But go soon it will. So I am looking for suggestions for a replacement. Now to make it easier on everyone let me make it clear that I already own a DSLR system, nor am I interested in a tiny sensor superzoom.
    I am looking for suggestions for a large sensopr compact with 6x zoom or so.

    Thanks in advance

    Seems like the next logical step would be the Canon PowerShot G1 X, the large-sensor compact with a fixed lens. I think it only has a 4x zoom though. I think all the other large-sensor compacts have interchangeable lenses, so you would probably just want to use your DSLR since you'd be carrying extra lenses anyway.

    Some of their models go all the way up to 42x optical zoom.

    Thanks but the sensors are all too small for the quality I want.
