    Is the S-100 worth the upgrade over the S-90 or S-95? and if so, why? your opinions are appreciated..
    Thanks,
    Doug

    From what I have read the S100 seems to be worse than the S95 for image quality. Whether you would be able to see this or not is down to the viewer. Many have gone for the S95 over the S100. I do miss my S95!

    It's apparently only a tiny bit worse. I have had a play with a s100 and took some test shots. I was pretty impressed but still maintain that the s95 is a tad better. The s100 is a fully fatured camera and should be better in low light than the s95 so i suggest you take an SD card to a shop and have a play, take the images home and have a look and see if they are good enough.

    Unless you really need an 24mm equivalent focal length or better video, I would not upgrade. Apart from that there are not enough differences to justify an upgrade.
