Thank you everyone for your informative responses.

It sounds like the most likely way we're going to see anything larger than f8 in the S-series camera is if it is introduced with a larger sensor? I can say with honesty I would give up some zoom range in exchange for an S130 with a 1 inch sensor. It would seem such a camera would have its buyers...

1" RX100 goes down one more stop, to f/11. G1X Mk II can go down another stop, to f/16. They are substantially bigger than an S110 or S120, and less zoom range would not make them that much smaller. Oh, did I mention they are noticeably more expensive than an S120?

TANSTAAFL. Sad but true.
