I have just purchased a Canon G5 and have a question relating to the in-built ND filter. I understand that the filter stops down the light entering the sensor but does it also affect theF value? ie If F8 was selected, and the ND filter was turned on, does it cause a larger F value thus making more of the scene in focus?

No, a neutral density filter simply stops a given amount of light from hitting the sensor. It lets you select a slower shutter speed or a larger aperture than would normally be available in brightly lit conditions.
