Best camera among the four? Also would you prefer a 1/1.72 sensor with ~15mp or 1/1.33 with ~10mp?(my other concern) -quality wise

You really haven't stated your photographic needs. Without that you can comfortable roll dice or throw darts among the four and have an equally probability of satisfactory results. The 14MP 1/1.72 sensor cameras will be slightly larger and heavier and give a little more cropping room in post processing but even the 10MP 1/2.33 sensors give a fair leeway in that department.

Handle the cameras if you can. Controls and ergonomics can help you decide.

If I was limited to choosing between these four, then I would be most interested in the Nikon S710, because it is the only one with manual adjustments comparable to my Canon G9;

"Program, Aperture, Shutter, and Manual Exposure Modes allow you to have the ultimate control over your pictures. Now, you can adjust the camera's settings for any type of lighting conditions and get as creative as you want." - from Nikon's page

The Canon SD990 IS lists manual controls, but they are not as useful as those offered by the Nikon S710;

"Programmed Auto (P)
Shutter-Priority Auto (S)
Aperture-Priority Auto (A)
Manual (M)" - from Nikon's page
