enjoy landscapes, nature, & family shots. the telephoto is a big draw. I am concerned about quallity and enlargement limitations of 4mp vs 6mp. both cameras fit the budget right now.

The Panasonic has a larger zoom, so you'll be able to zoom in to the subject matter more tightly rather than cropping it out of the Fuji images - in cases like that, more zoom is better than more megapixels.

The Panasonic has compression/quality settings, and the Fuji does not (except in it's 12MP interpolated setting). The Fuji compresses images fairly heavily, resulting in some loss of detail. I'm not trying to pick on the S7000 (I own one) but it does have limitations due to some features being left out that SHOULD have been there (such as compression settings).

Given the choice again today, I'd have gone with the Panasonic over the Fuji.
