CX5 owners - where are you??!

Little has been said about the CX5. I previously had the R4, R5 and R6. The R4 was definitely the best one. Now I need a compact with a good tele. Video is not so important as my wife has a Sony HX5V. My main needs are good zoom range, solid build quality, macro and decent low light pics (not for pixel peeping though!). I came down to two options:

Ricoh CX5

Canon SX230

So my questions are:

1-Have any of you had the opportunity to use both cameras? What do you think?

2-Can someone post low light pics of the CX5?

3-Can you comment on the main advantages/disadvantages of my options?

Thanks in advance!
