Sorry, but I got lost after the first 1000 words!

You're absolutely right!  I'm not good at concise posts, but here's my attempt to summarize:

-> Had an SD950, went shopping for a new Canon pocket camera, like the SX series.

-> Shocked to see the quality of the sample photos was so poor - image noise, graininess, blurriness, distortion, chromatic aberration - only the S100/110 was fairly similar to what I was used to.

-> Ran out, got an RX-100, expecting the world

-> Got similar or worse levels of camera noise, plus other issues, like poorer contrast, low light performance, poor depth of field.  Did some research.  Decided it was most likely the shift to CMOS around 2010 that was the issue.  (RX-100 did have some cool improvements.)

-> Asking for advice on how to get image quality as good as the old stuff.

Current consensus seems to be S95 & G15

Thanks.

- Jeff
