Re: S100 for a beginner?

The answer comes down to portability, and will you take the camera with you. I recently bought an S100 and carry it with me everywhere...but it is no substitute for my 40D SLR. The S100 is an amazing camera for a tiny compact, and perfect if you want a camera to take with you at all times or where a larger SLR would not be practical or socially desirable. You could learn how to correct for distortion or perspective using Photoshop. Tilt-shift lenses are expensive, although you could rent them for an SLR, which begs the question, how often will you use the camera? how often do you plan on using the camera? An occasional lens rental will cost much less than the lens itself.
