Hi, I was planning to buy a G5 around Christmas time but when I went in to Best Buy the salesperson said they no longer carried the G5 because it is discontinued! Does anyone know if this is true? If so I need to go ahead and get one before other places sell out.

Barely one after after it's introduction....that's about right. They are still available, like here:

I can see they've stopped the deal where they were offering the body and a 1 GB flash card at a really good price, so the stock levels may in factbe dwindling.

It is still a current model on Canon's site. Here is a list of 63 stores where they are available:
http://shopping.com/xPC-Canon_PowerS...~S-6~OR-0~PG-1 There is one that is used leaving 62 merchants listed by this site that have them in stock. That they could dry up before Christmas even if Canon discontinued them tomorrow is very unlikely.

My best guess would be that a G6 and the G5 will still be available at Christmas, with the G5 at lower prices or with a rebate and possibly discontinued.

You could watch the supply and order one if they start drying up.
