Default G2 or D90

My brother-in-law looked at a few cameras today and liked both the Nikon D90 and the Panny G2. 2 quite different cameras in feel and size. He asked me which was the better and i said you might aswell be asking a killer whale as i haven't a clue!!

Liking both he can't decide. G3 is out but he wasn't fussed on how it felt.

Thing is, he does take a fair few shots indoors and does so in his job as he works for a caving company. He said he would be using it for work too.

G2 is small and portable but does it have good IQ, AF etc? Would he see a big difference in IQ with the D90?

If he wants to shoot any real action stuff or low light stuff, the D90 hands down. G3 is the better HD camera. G3 is good for a single shot, but does not have the AF tracking ability that the D90 has.
