As the flyby geometry is similar to the last orbit, Cassini visited periapsis before the Titan flyby. Some close-ups of moons are already available.

Mimas (http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/raw/raw-images-details.cfm?feiImageID=37948) -- This is probably the highest-resolution image of the moon so far. Unfortunately the image is saturated with cosmic ray scratches. The non-spherical shape of the moon is clearly visible.
There are also (again!) some hires images of Rhea.
