The S90 has obvious strengths, certainly in low light, but the NR seems too random and aggressive in better light imho.

guess we have to wait for more RAW files to see where the problem is coming from: aggressive noise processing for JPEG output (like H7/9), or simply a bad lens that blurs all fine detail? The relatively bad corners in S90 JPEGs (CA/PF, sharpness etc.) suggest to me that the lens is the major problem - in which case RAW might not make much of a difference.
