Starting a new job next week, which will involve a lot of travel, so I was thinking about upgrading a couple of my cameras soon.

I am very happy with the image quality of my Micro 4/3 Olympus E-PM2, but the touch screen annoys the heck out of me. There are a few newer generations and several feature levels of the Olympus PEN cameras, but the model numbers confuse me. What models might I want to consider that would be a more enthusiast oriented version of the PEN?

The other one to upgrade is my Canon Powershot S90. I had a Powershot S100 for a short time, but it failed with a lens error and since I only paid $100 for it, it would have cost more to fix. I did see a noticeable difference in image quality to the S90. So, the latest and greatest S120, or a used S110?

What's the price difference between these, and what's your budget? By "used" do you mean refurbished and/or with some kind of warranty or straight 3rd-party sale?

I am not a fan of cameras without a viewfinder, so really not up on all the Olympus models. Have you considered the EM10 or Pen F? The Pen F is a bit pricy in my opinion but the EM10 is really good camera at a great price point. If you need weather sealing, the EM5 is a great option or the EM1 (which is what I shoot). Pretty much, the IQ from any of them is going to be more or less equal except in the Pen F or the EM1mk2 (which both have 20mp sensors compared tot he 16mp sensors of the other cameras).

I tend to like the budget end of the spectrum, as I take a lot of risks with my cameras, often taking photos while pedaling in a group. The Canon S series have been ideal, being easily handled and quickly stuffed back in a jersey pocket.

I'll have a look at the models mentioned, thanks.

It's somewhat affordable and very compact. For about the same price, you can get an Olympus OM-D E-M5 mkii. I have one of those and it's pretty great.
