First, whoever ever told you 8 MP was best is not to be trusted. In point and shoot (P&S) cameras with their small sensors probably 6-7 is best within the current state of the art.

I'm of the opinion that the "super-zoom" cameras with 12x image stabilized (IS) lens are the most versatile and a number of those can be had for $400 or less, sometimes a lot less. You should check the Steve's Best Camera list for super-zooms: http://www.steves-digicams.com/best_cameras.html.
