Ugh,

ZS7 (Silver) on Amazon went down to $302.24 and they won't do price match because my order was shipped :-( If it keeps going down I may return it and repurchase it...

Yes, I saw that. That's below what I paid. The problem is, you may have to pay to ship it back (unless you claim that's defective). They use to do a price adjustments within 30 days. By getting rid of that policy, they encourage customers to lie and send perfectly good units back as defective just to get the extra savings.

I ordered my on Sunday (5/23) and it went into "preparing to be shipped" mode few hours later. Amazon told me they won't do price match because it has been shipped and I told them USPS doesn't work on Sundays so how can it be shipped. Lady didn't really have an answer just that it is the company policy "no matching after it's been shipped".

$309.07 - Still not bad. I just don't know why Amazon is making such a fuss over few $. I even told them, due to their 30 day return policy, it'll cost them more on return shipping if I decide to return and repurchase.

Lady did say they are working on some new price matching policy but would not go into details.

So what does the ZS7 give that the ZS6 doesn't ? Also, what does the 6 have the 5 doesn't ?

Based on today's prices (inclusive of taxes and coupon)

ZS5 at Amazon - 239
ZS6 at Costco - 268
ZS7 at Amazon - 314

toscano-

Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased you dropped by.

Effective today, June 10th, the ZS6 is $239 at Costco.

The ZS6 does not have GPS and the AVCHD Lite HD video format. But it does have a 460K pixel LCD screen.

The ZS5 does not have GPS and the AVCHD Lite HD video format, and the LCD screen is only 230K pixels.

Thanks Sarah.

With CA Sales tax (they add tax on the pre-coupon price) the ZS6 is 240 + approx. 10% of 290 making a total out the door price of just under 269.

GPS I don't care about.

So, what are the pros/cons of AVCHD Lite ?

Thanks again.
