I picked up a Canon S95 a week ago. It's my "always with me", full manual (with real dials), compact camera.
Likes - Very compact, fits in a pocket with ease, full manual control, mechanical dials for ease of manual controls (the separate control ring is great), RAW support, deep depth of field (great for landscapes, easily hackable firmware with CHDK, always with me
Dislikes - No hotshoe, images are noisy when compared to a proper DSLR, impossible to obtain a shallow depth of field (unless shooting macro)
Overall, I'm very happy with it. I've been able to capture some pretty good shots that I would have otherwise missed because I didn't have my DSLR with me.
