That's my dilemna. I would like the longer zoom of the TZ5 but it lacks some of the "cool" features of the FX-500. The P-80 is, indeed a nice camera with an even more impressive zoom range but the down side for me here is it's not pocketable and it 'only' goes down to 28mm.

I think IQ should be about the same on all three and I'm impressed with the relative lack of geometric distortion in Panasonic products and have heard some so so things thus far (still very early on) about the Nikon's zoom. To be fair, it has a huge zoom range so I guess you have to cut it a little slack.

I don't anticipate using the video capabilities much but I guess that could be a consideration if one is significantly superior to the others in this regard.
Price is roughly equivalent.

I'm really torn.

What would you guys buy?
