My wife and I have similar cameras (I have a G10 and she has a G11). I found myself grabbing hers by mistake when they were on the counter and the LCD was facing away from me. I picked these rings up from Amazon recently and I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed. They're great quality and fit well, but that's where the good points stop. The Gold ring (my wife's choice) is barely gold and actually is more chrome than anything else and the blue is extremely faint and really just looks more gray. This isn't a big deal except that I was expecting the richer colors shown in the photographs. Other than this, they're fine. The silver is definitely different, but I'd prefer to keep the black with a more subtle accent.
Not the difference I was hoping for.
I have a few co-workers and friends who have Canon G12's and G11's. I thought I needed something different to set my G12 apart from the crowd. These rings are the ticket. I just have a tough time picking one to leave on. I wish they sold them separate so I would just have to choose one and be done with it. They are top quality aluminum polished and anodized so they look good. The blue is very nice a subtle with a nice glow to it and the gold really looks nice and rich. I wish they made it in red like a L lens. They are nice if you like to set your camera apart from the crowd.
I've really grown to appreciate my Canon G10 and G11. As a wedding photographer, these cameras have now replaced by DSLR, as the quality of the photos and ease of use make them both excellent camera. I purchased the lens ring set just to dress the cameras up a little bit. I would have given this a five star rating, but the cost of the three rings (just over $20) was a bit steep for what you get.
