Dilemma - Canon refurbished S95 $279 (on way) v Amazon just reduced S100 to $249
Feb 10, 2013

As I posted on another thread I have decided to return to the S95 from the G15 as the former suited my needs better.

I ordered a Canon refurbished S95 for $279 (plus an exorbitant $15.99 shipping) which is now on its way. I have also just read that Amazon have reduced the S100 to $249.

I have checked various threads and internet posted output images but am now torn/confused by which one to go for. I like the wider angle and extra zoom of the S100 (I don't really care about HD video or GPS) but I was wondering if there is a "seeable" difference between the image quality of the CMOS v CCD sensors. My old S95 produced great shots most of the time and if I can maintain the same, get an improved wide/zoom function and save a little then maybe the S100 would be the one. I have also read forum posters that preferred the S95.

I'm assuming the lens error problems were resolved by Canon and current vendor inventory should be fine on this issue.

I would really appreciate it if anyone here who currently owns both models could provide any guidance with reference to comparative IQ.

Thanks in advance.
