Jim shared a couple of G10 photos shot mainly in Landscape mode, and commented how much sharper and detailed the images were, especially when compared to his Canon 40D DSLR.

Extensive Canon G10 gallery by Vince Basile
Vince’s G10 gallery has to be one of the most comprehensive collection of Canon G10 photos on the internet. As far as I can tell, all the photos have been uploaded at their original size, which is extremely useful for evaluating the image quality of the camera. I have already stated in my Canon G10 Reviews post that I think the image quality out the G10 far exceeds what I get with my own Ricoh GX200.
Browsing through Vidar’s gallery, one understands what the fuss about the G10 is all about — its sheer resolving power. Click through the thumbnails to the photos, click the All Sizes icon above the photo, and select Original to view a larger version of the photos. I’m blown away by the sharpness, detail, color and tonality in this G10 ISO 200 portrait.
Vidar has commended the G10’s out-of-camera JPEG files for remarkable detail, read about it here.

It’s a bit difficult to draw a conclusion as the exposures are different, but it’s clear that both cameras can easily resolve this high levels of detail.
