It's all absolute trade offs.

For me the S series is all about ultra compact, IQ (over other tiny compact cameras) and exposure control with PATM and RAW at a <$400 price. These are the strengths and should be improved further.

If like to see figic 6, a faster lens, even at the expense of the zoom length if necessary. If also like a larger sensor if the engineers can fit one in.

Other camera series have OVF/EVF, flip display and remotes. I'm only interested in these if the main benefits above remain. Battery life? Who cares, bring a couple if extra batteries. GPS or wifi? Feels lame to have to choose, it's 2013 and those are standard features in consumer cameras just as much as wrist strap and flash.

Perhaps I'd like to see even more rapid focusing using the touch interface such as on the EOS SL1, but again only if it doesn't come at the expense of key features including the price.
