Just picked up a S90 at BestBuy (I also own the G10 and 5D, 7D). I love this little camera, but the rear wheel seems to be way too sensitive. It's not so much a problem when I am using the camera, but my wife is totally frustrated because the camera keeps changing the settings on her because she accidentally moved the rear wheel. Do others have this same problem?

Yeah, I've noticed it, but hasn't been a major issue. I've noticed it more on this than the sx110 I think because the s90 is smaller. In general though, it's not been a major frustration.

I've already posted on this issue. When I'm just popping random images I'll use P mode which forces the rear dial to iso mode. Suddenly I found my images were all over the iso map. I would rather it do nothing then allow accidental changes to ANY setting. I would love to see a menu option labeled "kill the rear adjustment ring" lol

Same issue on the SX20IS....the rear wheel has no detents and it is very easy to inadvertently change settings. Definitely a less than wonderful design....the wheel on my SX110 is much nicer....with positive stops for each setting or increment...yet easy to adjust.

I have had no issues with the scroll wheel.
