the Sandisk Extreme III (pick a 4gb or 8gb) is fast and cost effective.

On the high end side, the Sandisk Extreme and Panasonic gold cards are Class 10 cards are really good. The are the high end brands with the price tag to match. If you do take HD video, you should have at least a Class 6, but burst rate is not a big issue for the G11 so you can save some money getting a Class 6 instead.

I use a Delkin Efilm 16gb class 6 card, and have had not issue. And my backup is a panasonic 8gb class 6 card. If you do do all hd video, I would go with at least a 8gb. Couple of 4 min video will eat up most of the room on a 4gb card.

Laxar, transcend, kingston are all good brands also.
