out of curiousity, why do you rate the IQ of the s100 as OK and s95 as better? From everything that i read about it, i understand the opposite.

I was disappointed with my 300HS and SD780 IQ. I'm very happy with my S95 IQ and just OK with the S100 IQ.

So for me the S95 was worth the extra $100 but the S100 was not worth the extra $170 over the cost of the 300HS.

This is irregardless of light, the S95 just consistently produces better results.

Regarding RAW: It's not just for pro's, it's supported by just about everything (picasa, windows with a MS codec pack). I use lightroom and just having the RAW option is worth the $100 premium of the S95.
