I have the G12 and also Fujifilm's X20. They are a tossup in image quality, with maybe a small edge to the Fuji. Neither one is really a pocket camera, although with big pockets, or short distances, they can be pocketed. The X20 in particular has a lens that sticks out. I carry either one in a belt pouch.
