Pentax 105wr vs 90wr film point and shoot

I had a Pentax 90wr for many years and loved it but it finally bit the dust. I'm looking to replace it with a Pentax 105 wr. Is there a big difference between the two besides a little extra zoom. I mainly use these camera for long hikes and places I don't want to take my K10d or k100d. I sometimes miss using film so that is why I want to replace my broken 90wr.

They were both very highly rated P&S cameras. Played with both, but only shot the 105. It has a very sharp lens on it. Remember reading that in a photo mag as well. It also did a good job with metering - even working well with slide film. Something many P&S have trouble with. Think you would like it.
