What focal length and/or aperture is the sweet spot (the sharpest photos)?

I find it plenty sharp at all focal lengths and apertures. P&S cameras tend to be sharpest in macro photography, but for normal shooting, f/2 is sharp enough on the S95.

Please pay as little attention to David as possible. I've tried to reason with him in his own thread, but he doesn't seem to understand. The S95 is as sharp as P&S cameras get. These days. There isn't another compact of its size that delivers better results. That's true for not only any credible forum on the internet, but from someone who actually has the camera (me), as opposed to someone who's never even held one (David).

You are obviously from Bizarro-world. There isn't a sane person on this Earth who would read the reviews and come to believe that the S95 pumps out poor images :D I nearly laughed when I read your posting.

There you have it. ACTUAL S95 owners telling you its the sharpest P&S they've seen. Orrrrr you could be like David and go against the grain and pick up the Panasonic LX5. Another fantastic camera, if you really need a hotshoe on your P&S....and if you like snap on lens caps.

Check out the "Show us your best with an S95!" thread for sample pics, if you haven't already. If it isn't one of the best and sharpest P&S currently, then post a reply with what you think is the best buy for the money. I bet you won't even top the S95.

"David" is apparently a goldfish, because his long-term memory is obviously less than 6 days :D

I don't have the S95, but I do have the S90 (close), and make no mistakes about it, as compact cameras go, it's plenty whole bunch sharp!
