7 to 8 Mpx.

I'd entirely agree if we were talking about the telephoto end of the zoom - crop 8Mpx down to 7 and gain some extra reach, yes.

But it doesn't work at the w/a end - if your lens barrel has '28mm' etched onto it and you switch your camera to 'normal' 4:3 mode and take a picture at wide angle, your going to be a tad disappointed to find it is only about 35mm (equiv, of course).
I wouldn't accuse Panasonic of misleading marketing, of course.
