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.

I have ZS9, love it. The only difference is that ZS9 has stereo mic. This is a good price for ZS8.

$129 seems like a good price for a ZS8, but $229 is unreasonably high, so its not as great as it sounds. I think I paid less than $200 for my ZS9 (which as likethemcheap said is virtually the same camera) but that was a while ago. You can probably get a nicer (newer) Panasonic for not much more.
