I got my S90 and S95 around the second week of Oct (2009 and 2010) so i think this sounds about right.

I do not intend to return it but rather have been waiting for 6+ months for it! I have owned the S30, S50, S60, S80, S90 and have loved them all.

Every camera has it's pros and cons but this is the best pocketable camera for me. There is very little competition for me personally because most other pro cameras are larger and not pocketable. If it needs to be on a shoulder strap i'd rather have my DSLR's.

Basically, I trust Canon but don't expect this to be better than my DSLR's I will do extensive tests and comparisons when I get it and post them here.

My email from Amazon stated a October 6-October 18th estimated delivery window. But, my account at Amazon now states October 3-October 11th.

Canon S100 gets early October estimate from Amazon, likely to ship ahead of November

Canon S100 gets early October estimate from Amazon, likely to ship ahead of November release

http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/19/canon-s100-gets-early-october-estimate-from-amazon-likely-to-sh/

"Canon's high-end PowerShot S-series is a mighty special breed, so we've been rather excited about the company's new S100, which we were told to expect in November with a $430 sticker price. Now it looks like the S95 successor may slip out of the warehouse a month earlier than promised, with Amazon estimating ship dates as early as October 3rd. In an industry where delays are much more prevalent than quiet early releases, this is certainly welcome news for the highly anticipated pocket cam, which packs a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and f/2.0 (variable) zoom lens. Shipping estimates are always subject to change, so don't count on any miracles until that FedEx tracking number hits your inbox.

Oh that's great news! Maybe will receive in time for foliage season. I'm SURE this will be an upgrade to my SD870IS!

geepondy: fyi, i loved my SD850IS and SD870IS! yet, the improvements to the S90/S95 were substantial for me. the S90/S95 were simply more enthusiast-oriented and you may make adjustments easily.

i'm sure you'll love your S100. congrats on your decision and i'll upgrade my S95 to the S100 along with ya!

Vive la S100.

Confirmation of Amazon Delivery Estimate Oct 05 - Oct 13

Just an hour ago I received a new email from Amazon regarding my September 17 order for a S100: "Estimated arrival date: October 05 2011 - October 13 2011"

For me that's great news because I want the GPS for a trip I start at the end of October.

I hope speed of operation is faster...

As I posted before, in my brief exposure using an S95, I was dismayed to see the speed of operation was slower then my SD870IS. That just didn't seem right with Canon's flagship powershot so I'm hoping the speed of operation improves with the S100.

CMOS will operate much faster than the S95

Mostly definitely. The change to CMOS will make a BIG difference which is already obvious with the 2.3 fps continuous shooting instead of previous .9 fps in the S95.

Impressive on Amazon.com is the S100 is the #4 Best Sellers in Digital Cameras, while the S95 is #5.

Re: CMOS will operate much faster than the S95

I'm hoping for such things as faster focusing, faster shot to shot times, etc. It's in this area that the S95 was definitely slower then my four year old SD870IS.

Do you capture raw on your S95? Or is it jpg capture that you're referring to regarding slow shot to shot times?

Curious since I'll buy a S95 if the S100 does not have better low light image quality.

Thanks,
Sky
