Your A95 has an optical (tunnel) view finder, and a swivel LCD. They may be features you will miss if you get an S95. The G11/G12 have both, as well as several external controls not on your A95. You also get a hot shoe with a G series. The S95 does not have a hot shoe, optical view finder, or swivel LCD. I use all the features of my G9 and G11, and also have an older A620. I miss the extra capabilities of the G's when I try to do things with the A620, so my wife uses it now. She does not like the "complicated" G's, but likes the A620 in Auto or P, only.

If you only care about size and portability, as well as image quality, then you may prefer the S95. I would sometimes like to have an S95 for the smaller size, but then would miss the swivel LCD, hot shoe, and optical view finder.
