Default F717 compared to G5, please comment for my buying decision!

I've borrowed F717 for shooting concert photos without using flash. I was impressed by the photos quality which the focus was accurate, and the image was sharp even without using falsh in such a dark environment.

Do anyone know about G5 ? How does it compared with Sony F717 with regard to the capacity operating in night shooting or some difficult light occasions, e.g. concert or in party room?

I like Sony a lot, but it seems G5 is the latest model, and even the price of F717 is more expensive than G5. It's hard to make a choice.

Thanks for all you advice!

You might like to consider the Sony DSC-V1.

Its as new as the Canon G5 (not to mention cheaper), and has been described as the Sony 717 in a smaller body.

Another thing to note, the Sony V1 has as much noise at ISO800 as the G5 has at ISO400.

You wouldnt be disappointed with the V1.
