The Canon S 95 is your best bet. It will do everything the G9 did for you but is a much smaller package with better color. Here's a good review from the alwys-crusty Ken Rockwell: http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/s95.htm. The S95 has been replaced by the S100 so you might either be able to get the S95 at a deal or be forced to buy the S100, which is just a larded up S95.

Yup, S95 (or S100). Compared it to everything available last year and was a clear winner based on size and features. Image quality will be excellent with decent light, especially compared to the small sensor "ruggedized" compacts, but will degrade quickly when compared to any full-frame DSLR in low light so don't ask it to do what it can't.

The only other option I considered was the Lumix Lx5 and once you hold them both in your hand you should be able to decide pretty quickly. I opted for shirt-pocket small as the Lx5 was just a bit to big - you may decide the opposite.
