Dez is right that you should read the reviews carefully. here's one for the nikon P7700 as well.

A couple of other things I remembered. The custom settings on the Panny are better than the Nikon, the nikon ones are ok but don't offer as many options for saving your settings as the LX.

On the other hand the Nikon has a filter thread (no adapter needed) and accepts a microphone for video. It will also do slave flash and strobe.

At the end of the day it seems to me that it comes down to size, reach and flash compatibility requirements  and the weight you give to these.

Good luck.

cheers
