JoeR has this to say about the P7100 vs Canon G11 (I’ve made a couple of edits for clarity):

The P7100 is more feature rich. It focuses fast, has a longer zoom, better (shorter) shutter lag and image adjustments similar to DSLRs. I especially like continuous shooting with flash, more powerful flash, etc. I shoot mostly raw and process and view in Capture NX2 and ViewNX2. The Nikon files look better in these programs. Initially I was concerned that image quality in the upper zoom range would be poor. This was based on some of the posted images here. It didn’t turn out that way. For some reason image quality degrades somewhat on this and other forums. When I view in ViewNX2 they look so much better. The one thing I don’t like is slow continuous shooting. I would like to see a frame rate of about 5/sec. Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking the G11. It’s a fine camera and is user-friendly.

JoeR has some really nice flower photos in this PBase gallery. The newer ones are from the P7100 while the older photos were shot with the Canon G11.
