I'm looking for the best possible image quality in a fully automatic point & shoot camera. This will mostly be for my wife (she won't use any manual controls), although I'll probably use it occasionally.

I think the G series will be too big and bulky for this purpose, so I was thinking about the S90 or maybe one of the SD cameras (which SD is best these days?)

Looking for opinions... what do you guys think?

Thanks!

I think the SD990 is the best but my wife likes the SD1100 IS

I like the SD1200 but I had no interest in HD video at all; I did have an interest in the smallest possible camera. You can see day to day shots with the SD1200 on my personal blog (external link)

Funny, if the S90 had full-HD video this would be a no brainer -- I'd order one right now. :)
