A normal lens for a G11 would be a 9.5mm lens!! You sure you want to mention
this toy in the same sentence paragraph or page as a Leica M9 or m8?

Its like saying you cant afford an M6 so you are buying a Minox IIIs
(8x11mm format) 
Does not compute. Apples and oranges!!!
Nobody ever used a minox spy camrea for the kind of photography that an M6
could do.
Its not that much different as digital sensors go compared to film.
