Settings and modes on SX40HS?

I'm mainly interested in hearing just how many users of this remarkable photo tool select a shooting mode other than "P" or "auto". I fall into this catagory, using either "P" or "Av" most of the time. The reason is, I have a hard time seeing much difference when tweeking more detailed settings. I do see these differences when shooting with my DSLR, but am hard pressed to see them on the SX40. The same is true for the meter settings as well. I have frequently tried out different meter settings on the same images only to see the very slightest differences, if that.

Maybe this goes to show that I'm really not as particular as I thought I was. Or, that I feel these setting differences, on all but DSLRs, only shows up as miniscule differences.
Comments please.
