Without owning the camera, based solely on what I've read about the camera here, convinced two casual users who for some reason slightly value my opinion, to buy S230s. I knew the extent of the their digital editing would pretty much be what Picasa or other basic editing programs offered. I've been very pleased with the S100's raw performance but agree with others in that the default jpg output is rather blah, at a minimum in serious need of a contrast boost. Wonder why Canon picked this jpg path rather then the punchier jpg output of the S95?

Without owning an s100 you're persuading others to make a choice without trying it? I own both cameras, and both have their strong points. If I could only have one, based on IQ alone, it would be the s100 without a doubt. I don't doubt that they will be happy with an SX230, but you're credibility only applies to it, not the s100.
