SD 990 has a larger sensor (1/1.7) and an optical viewfinder.

It also has a "Manual" mode where you can choose between two F stops and then choose a variety of shutter speeds. Not sure that the SD970 has this.

So they are really 2 different cameras. The newer one is not a natural progression from the older one. It has some new features but is missing some that the SD990 has.
