Re: S5 or S1

Tom and the others have covered the main differences pretty comprehensively.

I’ll just add that the S5 is a sister camera to the G9; built to replicate the experience.  So if you found that the G9 felt good and invigorating then that background would likely boost your rapport with the S5.

However, the S1 is of a higher grade, with longer lasting shutter and the unsung benefits of durability.  It could keep on serving as an auxiliary for many years even as you upgrade to an SX5 etc.
