Looks like lots of great features on the s100. Better zoom range, though not as fast a lens.

No hot shoe.

But really good image quality, full hd video, sounds like a useful macro mode.

How is the auto focus? Or is it still sluggish compared to the lx5? Certainly the s90 and s95 have trailed the pack, in terms of auto focus.

Does the S series have the same issue as the G series, that if you use M mode for ambient exposure, you cannot use TTL flash metering?

Mahalo!

AF is the same as S95. LX5 is much faster.
Still no TTL in Manual mode.
I think the video is still fully automatic.
Yes 1080p, but that is no guarantee for high quality. Test it first!
No AF during video.

LX5 has a fully manual video mode and a great following AF during video. You can even zoom and alter the exposure while filming.
