I happen to have both cameras, and like you, I am a bit disappointed with the IQ and focus consistency of the S9100. The P7100 is a completely different beast. I am trying to get rid of the S9100, while the P7100 is my new take-anywhere camera, and the perfect companion to my dSLR.
I have appended 4 photos from my trip to New England in the fall, the first two are from the S9100, and the latter two from the P7100.
