Canon G9 vs Canon EOSA2E
I own an EOSA2E & want a lighter camera.Will the G9 be as sharp as the A2E if pictures are blown up on both to 12 X 14 or 18 X 24??..

Sharpness of an SLR camera primarily depends on the lens used.G9 has one fo the sharpest lens out there. So don't worry..

G9 pics might show up noise grains at that size. However at base ISO, the results should be acceptable (if you shoot in Raw mode and postprocess)..

If you want to blow up to that size at anything above base ISO, then consider a DSLR for best possible results..

It's hard to compare a film SLR to a point and shoot digital. I still have an A2E and I also have a G9 and EOS 30D. The 30D stacks up better against the A2E since I use the same lens. The main issue I had switching from film to digital was it seemed that I could get better picture with the digital, but they usually needed some tweaking on the computer first (white balance, contrast, sharpening, etc). It also depends on how fussy you are about your prints. To properly do those adjustments you have to have a color calibrated monitor..

The G9 can produce great shots easily up to the sizes you listed, but you have to keep it at lower iso speeds and properly expose the photos. You might have to tweak the images a little too...

If base iso on the G9 is not sufficient, or any time you shoot in lower light situations an entry level dslr will be better as far as image quality..

Also consider an entry level dslr handles better than a high end compact. Go to a store and handle both the G9 and an entry level Canon SLR. If you don't have Canon lenses that will fit the the Canon SLR body then expand and look at all of the entry level SLR's...

I assume you mean base ISO of 100 correct? Also what is RAW Mode?..

In case of G9 it is ISO80..

Also what is RAW Mode?.

It (RAW) is akin to undeveloped film. The JPG image is akin to developed film. Digital cameras do that with their on-board processors. However with Raw image, you can do that (i.e. JPG conversion) after downloading to PC in potentially better way (better software/processing, better noise reduction). Nevertheless The JPG images from Canons are one of the best..
