W60 or Ixus ?

Hello everyone ! I would like some opinions for choosing a compact camera as a second one , my DSLR is a K100D and i am pretty satisfied except the fact that i cant carry this baby everywhere.
I am considering the W60 as it is a tough little cam . I am little worried about the quality of the pics . In this category the pics are little disappointing for my stadards, but accepting the fact i can take pics everyday and everywhere , i can live with it
I saw also some sample pictures from Japan owners . I think they are acceptable and pretty good.
My second choice is the Canon IXUS 90 IS. Is it comparable with the pentax in the quality of the pics ? Does anyone have experience with both of them ?
Ofcourse the pentax has a lot of advantages , but i prefer not to sacrifice picture quality.
Thanks in advance for your tips and advices !

I'd go for the W60 because it's waterproof. I LOVE waterproof!

Yah, me too! I doubt very much you can see a difference in images between the two, excepting under low light conditions. I'll take the small size form, WP, DP, and great video capability any day.
