The Lumix LX5 is also a nice point & shoot. F2.0, 24mm on the wide end, RAW, full manual controls... Leica lens.

Not too shabby.

I also just picked up the new PowerShot D20 tough/ waterproof camera for a recent vacation, surprisingly good results in all conditions. Granted no manual controls, but you can beat the hell out of it :)

I'm waiting for my Canon SX-260 HS to be delivered today.  A few Summer vacations planned this year and wanted something smaller for a belt case to hide away when going on rides at the Orlando parks or without case to sneak into concerts and sporting events with the kids, lol.

Digic 5
25 mm wide angle
1080p hd video
12.1 mp
25-500mm zoom range

Great zoom range + IS + waterproof case available for when snorkeling in the Keys.

Much easier for me to carry the 260 HS than to carry my 5D3 in those situations.

I had the similar problem, cant carry 7D and a lens all around every time, needed a P&S. Chose SX-230HS after much research. The far end zoom was more important to me. Macro mode is good too.

8FPS, Macro F2.8 L, couple of more lenses, small flash MKI and a customised flash bracket.

Of the three, only the S100 will comfortable fit in your pocket - unless you're a lot bigger than an average guy.
My S95 is same size and performs well under most circumstances.  Only other small camera I've had was the
Leica D-Lux 3 but it was slightly bigger.  Under most circumstances no significant difference in viewing the
images or printing them up to 11X14.
