I am a big fan of my ZS7. Only thing I wish it had was Wifi but I got an Eye-fi. Also this ZS8 lacks GPS which the ZS7 has built-in. Not a big deal, more of a battery-drain than a must-have feature for most people, but something to be aware of.
This price is only good for the BLACK version of this camera. Silver is $229.
