Very true, another G1X II scenario again.
I think (but I am not sure...going from memory here) that the S95 is CCD and the S100 on up are CMOS.
I think that's true. Canon is moving to CMOS on all their higher end point and shoots.
Here's the problem: It will probably have a Canon-made sensor. Sony's 1" sensor already outperforms the much larger sensor in the G1X ii.
