Of the cameras you have listed only the Kodak P-712 and the Z-710 are over 7mp cameras. The P-712 also has IS, or Image Stabilization, which is a highly desireable feature, especiall in a camer with a long zoom, while the Z-710 does NOT have IS.

The Sony H-5 also has 7.2mp, IS, 12X optical zoom and does a superior job, even a bit better than the P-712, with a beautiful 3" LCD and that camera is surely woth a look as well. As a digital camera instructor, I have used all of the cameras on your list. I will also include a photo sample taken with the Sony H-5.

If you can relax on the 7mp requirement, then more cameras will come into consideration.
