for better image quality than the G9, G10, & G11, smaller still, and  
cheaper:  the Canon S90.
I gave one to my 7 year old daughter for her birthday present after  
she lost in town her beloved Lumix FZ5 which she enjoyed using since  
she was 4.
I ask to borrow it when I see a macro.  The S90's only downside for  
me, and my daughter, is that it has no viewfinder.  However, it has  
image stabilization.

It's widest aperture is f/2 and it has a (programmable) wheel around  
the zoom lens that can be set to adjust aperture (for the traditional  
feel) or to click through ISOs, focal lengths, or even for manual  
focus.  You can also set it to Auto and give it to an infant.
