Event though I consider both on the bulky side of compact P&S, for the price I am going to pay these bring the most features and both are highly well review. Some of the Feature that still have me not set on one are
the 12x optic vs 10x
720 Video vs 1080i
Full manual vs limit manual
$200 vs $180
Most likely going for the Panasonic tomorrow will be order date which ever I decide with, Trip in 2 weeks. Comments and recomendations are welcome
If you have the extra cash, I'd grab the ZS7 instead. I love my H55 (esp since I can't afford an S95), but the ZS7 has improved optical zoom and a much sharper screen. Although I can live without Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority modes (don't use them on my DSLR anyways), I think the screen is a huge plus. The biggest annoyance I have with my H55 is that the screen isn't HQ enough to tell if my image is sharp or not. I've had a few instances where it looked sharp on the LCD until I loaded it into my PC and saw it was actually blurry or OOF.
So in short, if you have the cash, go ZS7
Just be sure you are aware of that GPS. You don't want your house's GPS location to be tagged onto your photos, now do you?
