New happy S100 user

I have had my S100 for about 6 days, and so far it is meeting my expectations, which is very exciting.

I did try S90 when it first came out and was very unhappy with both picture quality and autofocus speed.  I thought I would never like anything in that same line, however, I decided to give S100 a chance and I am glad I did.   I had Sony RX100 earlier this year, but sold it, just did not love it.

What I'd like to see improved would be:

1) brighter lens at tele end:  Panasonic LX3/5/7 and Olympus XZ1 and XZ2 are doing it, which means it is possible to some extent;

2) spring flash like on Sony RX100, or Panasonic GF series, or Olympus EPL1/2 which can be bounced by pulling and holding it with a finger;

3) the af is still pretty slow, but getting there.
