A sample picture gallery for the Canon Powershot G9 is now posted at dpreview by Simon Joinson. A total of 27 sample pictures have been posted! The pictures are co-hosted by Fotki.
Also mentioned in the text above by Simon is that the above pictures are from a production camera, and a full review of the camera will be posted at dpreview in the next two weeks! This is great news as we will get a very early look at the G9, but also the 12mp Sony 1/1.7" sensor. This is certainly a review to look forward to! Thanks Phil and Simon!
One could ask, why not name it Canon G8? Perhaps Canon maybe saving this for another release, perhaps a G9 Lite to compete with the competitively priced Nikon P5000 and Panasonic LX-series? The most reasonable explanation of course is that they just didnt want to call it G8 :) Perhaps because of the international group by the same name?
Update September 6: A new gallery has been posted this time by Jeff Keller at dcresource. This production camera gallery is a prelude to the upcoming G9 review at dcresource.

We are still in 2007, so this is obviously a work in progress! So far we have had five RAWsumers announced in 2007. Here they are:
Meet the Olympus SP-550 Ultra Zoom
Meet the Panasonic FZ8
Meet the Fuji IS-1 (infrared version of Finepix S9100)
Meet the Ricoh GX100
Meet the Panasonic FZ18
RAW Disappointments! - We would have liked to see these cameras feature RAW, but they did not :-(

The EISA 2007 award winners have announced but none of the award-winning cameras are RAWsumers. The Canon G7 was one of the winners, but as we all know it does not offer RAW. The other non-DSLR winning an award was the Panasonic TZ-3 and we can't really expect/demand RAW from this camera (at least not just yet!). Let's not forget the Panasonic FZ-series grew out of the tiny and humble Panasonic FZ1 that didnt' even have PSAM! Among the DSLRs, the Canon 1D Mark III, Pentax K10D and Olympus E510 won awards as well. On the software front, DxO Optics Pro 4.5 got the award. More details at 1001 noisy cameras
