Canon G9

In my never-ending quest to find the most awesome camera you can stick in your pocket, I've come across the G9, seems like this one is getting pretty close to ideal:

- shoots in raw
- tons of manual controls
- 6x optical zoom
- image stablization

Some folks are saying they wish the sensor was higher quality, bigger, and maybe not so many pixels...

Anyone got any other ideas?, comments?

i got a G7 which is neither big not pocketable. And ever since I always thought that it was better to have a slick quick use pocketable and an SLR rather than one in the middle.

With two cameras strategy (SLR + pocket camera) G9 would be good substitutio for SLR and it is much smaller. The only thing that is missing is wide angle. How about getting G9 + pocket camera with wide angle.
I agree. Here's the link:
