Decided on the DMC-ZS8

Thanks for all the replies on my question. After a lot more research I decided on the DMC-ZS8. I happened to get it at a pretty good price ($165). I had finally narrowed it to the ZS8 and the Casio ZR100. The price difference was over $50 with Casio that seemed to have similar reviews and sample picture results, so I got the ZS8.

I've had the camera for a week now, and have taken almost 100 pics in different settings (light, dark, zoom levels, itc). So far I am extremely happy with it for what I use it for. It seems to produce pictures very similar to my ZS3, yet has a little more zoom, is quicker, and has a few more manual controls. While the LCD has less resolution than on the ZS3, it still looks pretty good to me. It definitely takes better pics than our ZR1.

For my uses so far, I'm very satisfied.
