Default Choosing between Canon S100 and G11

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum but need some independent advice. I recently had my Canon Powershot 970IS die on a cruise excursion (water), and I have sold my Nikon D100 equipment (no time to use). My other main camera is an Olympus SZ-570UZ which I love. So, I need a replacement.

I have looked at the reviews of the S100 and am very impressed by the portability and quality. I also like the G11/G12, but the G12 is out of my budget. So, what advice does anyone have between the two? I am especially interested if the G11 is worth the size trade-off. Also, I am not really interested in the video ability. I am very interested in build quality.

Most of my photography centers around traveling, and most of that will be on a motorcycle, unless I am on a scheduled vacation, so portability is important such as in a vest pocket. I consider myself an advanced amateur so I like to have as much control as possible.

Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

Based on the portability issue and build quality go for the S 100.
If video is not important to you maybe the S 95 would do the trick, cheaper too.
