I don't know if it has been noted before in the thread, but there doesn't seem to be any way to easily dial-in your exposure like on the EOS bodies (and by easily, I mean dedicated buttons / wheels). Even the S95 has a dedicated ring in the front to help you dial in aperture, shutter speed or ISO.
At first glance I thought the knurled ring around the shutter could have been an input dial, same with the narrower ring around the rear buttons, however, it seems from the plan view that this is a mode switch between video and stills, and if the camera is aimed squarely at auto powershotters I don't think they would attempt to replicate the front and rear qcd controls of larger EOS cameras.
Could be a very nice touch for the future though.
