S100 optics worse than S95?
Sep 25, 2011

Is anyone concerned that the S100 optics are going to be worse than the S95?

That is, given that the S100 lens has a wider range 5x vs 3.8x
On top of that the S95 has brighter apertures across the focal length.

I guess is a trade of quality vs flexibility, but if the S100 optics can at least match the S95 it would be an interesting camera. Big question remains the sensor though, but that is a different topic.

My bet is, that the S100 optics are going to be worse.

This is an 'I told you so' thread so place your bets here and we'll see when the comparison samples show up.
