I've just ordered a Canon G12 and had the same dilemma like you ... also, I was planning on buying another flash unit to use it as a slave for back lighting during macro photography ... but when I heard of the new Canon flash units coming up, I've decided to hold on till they release the new 270 EXII ... as it also works as a slave and does not "overwhelm" the G12
