I dont see anything about an improved min focus distance

That's one of my few disappointments from a G10 to a S90. (lensmate grip and ring fixed my other disappointments)

Oh.. and my S90 is 5 days old. LOL. Everyone said it would be October before these hit retail :confused:


I also notice they didnt do much with ergonomics. Surprised by that. The S95 looks even more slippery.

Other forums speculated that the rear control wheel is fixed on the s95 and according to dpreview the coating is now non-slip (same as 7D).

from dpr:

Improving on both the size and handling of its predecessor, the PowerShot S95 features an even slimmer body at just 29.5 mm thick*1, an improved multi-control dial and the same external coating used on the EOS 7D to improve slip-resistance and grip. Also designed to fit seamlessly into a photographer’s existing workflow, the camera offers RAW format shooting and support for Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software.

I'd still go for Richard's franiec's grip. It looks like it may just fit the s95..

they added clicks to the ring. but also notice the thumb indent on the back is now smooth. So, one step forward, one step back... :/

yeah, still at 2"/5cm. still 4x more than a G series. I'd call that closeup, not macro.
