You didn't mention anything about color gamut of laptop vs. desktop. Do you find you have problems when and if you edit something on your laptop and bring it back to a full color gamut screen. The Ipad actually has a pretty good gamut, and the new mac book pro, but besides a few specialty work station laptops, most seem to have bad color gamut or color rendition.
Lyonesse: I have read two professional reviews that mention focus issues with closer subjects. Has this been seen by the regular users?
I do mostly macro and noticed this focus problem very noticably when testing the S95 especially compared to the G12. Really wanted this camera for the size but ended up getting the LX5 because of the soft macro focus in the Canon S95. Hope they fixed it in the S100, they might have a new customer!
