The tops in image quality right now for p&s cameras are the Canon G11 and its smaller sibling the S90. And then Panasonic's LX3.

The G11 (28mm-140mm equiv lens) is considerably larger, but offers better controls, an optical viewfinder and swivel screen. The S90 (28-105mm equiv lens) has the same sensor in a smaller more compact body, but lacks the optical viewfinder and swivel screen.

Panasonic's LX3 offers great controls and an even wider 24-60mm equivalent lens and great image quality as well.

I will second the motion that currently the Canon G-11 and the S-90 hold the sharpest images crown.

mweb-

I guess you are stretching the P+S designation the OP used. And yes, it you want to be technically correct, the Sigma DP1/2 are sort of point and shoot cameras.However, I see them more as hybrids, which the also are technically.
