I'm trying to decide between these two (but may be open to suggestions, if they meet the same criteria).

The trade-off I see:
- TZ5 has 10x optical zoom, whereas FX150 has 3.6x.
- FX150 has RAW mode and I'm proficient with Photoshop and like to post-process sometimes.

The criteria for which I was looking (besides excellent picture quality):
- compact (at least not DSLR)
- HD quality video
- image stabilization

I settled on the Panasonic DMC-TZ5 (skipped the TZ50 because I don't need the wi-fi) after reading some reviews here and at dpreview.com) because of the 10x optical zoom and HD video. But then I found the FX150 with its RAW mode and got confused again. Any suggestions or thoughts?
